More stray bits

1) To the couple who got engaged in front of our neighbours' house on Saturday afternoon: Congratulations! I hope the sound of our car failing to start didn't disrupt things too much.

2) I finished the second Jitterbug yarn sock on the plane. Doing Kitchener stitch at the toe was a bit tricky, thanks to some questionable logic that led me to equate the idea "maybe I shouldn't bring a darning needle in my carry-on bag" with "maybe I shouldn't bring a darning needle at all," but somehow I was able to carry on. Here is the pair in a place of honour:

Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in the Toscana colourway. It looks a lot greener in real life than on-line. (Correction: greener than in the official yarn sample photos. The yarn in real life looks about this green on my monitor)
Pattern: the one on their ball band.

3) I finished the first Anemoi mitten over the weekend!


Yarn: Jamieson Shetland DK in Natural White and Seaweed (1 ball each)
Pattern: Eunny Jang's Anemoi Mittens.

Pretty socks, and the mitten is amazing!

I adore that mitten. I can feel my anti-fair-isle-knitting resolve weakening.

I'm sorry I missed the engagement on your street on Saturday! I hope they have a long and happy life together. :)
