I bet you don't know what Hummeldoddies are?!
My hands were freezing driving to work in the frosty mornings, so I decided to make a pair of Wendy's fingerless mitts. My partner took one look and exclaimed "Hummeldoddies!", which for those of you who don't come from a North East Scottish fishing village literally means: "Mittens without horns". I love that word!
The yarn is Noro Kureyon, colour 163, needles are Clover Bamboo 5mm and I am using the goddess from my bracelet as a stitchmarker. The image in the centre is by Snugbats and is a goth take on Little Red Riding Hood - this is my daughter's 10th birthday card! I am loving the Noro - despite it's occasional wholemeal-esque surprises: twigs mostly! I have never knit with a "not plied" yarn before and I could definitely get addicted.
Just one thumb to finish and then I am back to socks - it's nearly Christmas don't you know?!
