Mittens & Tea

Don't hands just look alien when photographed?
My attempt at "proper" knitting - by which I mean actually knitting with a purpose!

Made up pattern - cast on 30 stitches, knitted with Chunky Wool
Love them!

There was a Christmas Local Crafters Sale in Newlyn on Sunday - so I popped along.  
Found this lovely little "Gadget Cosie" from the very talented Poppy Treffry
My new camera (Panasonic Lumix FP3) loves it!

Hope you are all staying warm in this cold snap!

I am knew to knitting so I just had to GOOGLE DPN's..first came up Democratic Party for a New Society? - How would they help me?? Hee Hee - I then found Double Pointed Needle's...learn something new everyday!
