OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s always wonderful to gather together with friends and what better way to celebrate friendship than sharing yarn and knitting together!

We started by raiding our stashes for odds and ends of worsted weight yarn and put those scraps and scintillae to good use!

I designed a quickie fingerless mitt pattern that we could all follow [get the scintillae pattern for free on ravelry].

We had fun experimenting with cast on techniques, making colorful and subtle stripes, using favorite stitches, and planning for some fabulous embellishments to add later [check out the than 5,000 “Applique/Embellishments” in the “Components” category on ravelry].

Some of us started matchy matchy mitts and others mixed it up with lots of colors and stitches. I haven’t used much fun fur or eyelash yarn in the past, but I just couldn’t resist! Of course, then we needed matching hats 😉  We got off to a good start on our projects and had a splendid afternoon together!
