Found another sign of springtime on my way to go do errands today... the patterning on this crocus looked particularly fetching!
Have managed to find both my embroidered wool house boots and the non-slip dot textile used for slipper soles. This means that the next mending project will be stitching the non-slip to the felted wool soles of the house boots. This project has been a long long time in the making, as I began these boots nigh on 16 or more years ago, and then put them aside as they proved alarmingly slippy on any smooth flooring at all. At this rate I will probably have them done this weekend, and will finally be able to wear them around the house!
Today while out and about, the clerk at the yarn store recognised my "Log Cabin Mitts" and admired them. I had been hoping to find some yarn similar to the scraps of Noro Kureyon that formed the turquoise skystone centers, as buying several balls of Noro just for the bits that were that color seems less than ideal. Sadly, no joy, there was nothing at all similar. Truly, the colors of Noro are like nothing else...
