Lately I can't get enough of neutral yarns - ivory, gray, taupe, camel - if they are heathered even better. So when I ordered yarn to make my second Ida's Kitchen from Webs back in December I added in a few skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Worsted in Winter White & Steal Cut Oats to my shopping cart.
I've wanted to re-knit Clepsydra for a while. I thought they'd really shine in a neutral with the cabled i-cord cuff highlighted in a contrasting color. These are colors that I know I'll wear a lot and the alpaca yarn is warm enough to brave frigid NJ temps in January and February.
I'm heading out to Vogue Knitting Live in a few hours. These mittens and a bag filled with other samples of my designs are coming with me. I'll be at the Down Cellar Booth (#1601, 1603 & 1502) on Saturday from 11-12 & Sunday from 12-1. If you're at the market on either day stop by and say "hi".
Now that these are done I'm off to find a project to take with me. I think it might be a hat to match these mittens.
