So here’s the plan: I’m going to cast on Fiddlehead mittens using yarn that isn’t really the gauge called for in the pattern on needles that are much smaller than the yarn recommends. One yarn is 100% wool (discontinued, picked up super cheap in 2 different visits to Coveted Yarn) and the other is 53% wool and 47% acrylic. I haven’t even picked out a yarn for the lining of the mittens yet but I’m leaning towards a lime green or a hot pink. Maybe electric blue. Whichever is the most eye searing. So do you think I’ll run into any trouble?
BIL Update: I saw him with my own eyes yesterday so I feel better about giving an update. He is still on a ventilator but was awake enough to nod his head. He knows where he is and that he’s really sick. The slowest possible progress is being made in a positive direction but he is there for the long hall. Continued good thoughts would be appreciated.
