Easter is a time for finishing...

 First up in the finishing stakes is another Zuzu's Petals - this one for me. I fell in love with this particular Zauberball (Sphinx) - gorgeous shades of teal/green/browns - perfect. I put it on to take the photo and didn't want to take it off - so there it stays for the day. Cosy neck - yay!
And this is the Tutu Tea Cosy - it is for a charity auction. It seems a bit odd…….

Mitts for the Farmers Market

My friend makes and sells chocolate at the local Farmers Market - which is held at our Railway Station. Her stall is on the the railway platform and, even in summer, can be rather breezy and cool. I made her some mitts last year and then she asked for another pair - so this is the 2014 model.
 I've used a Vintage Purls Sock yarn - the chocolate colour is called Leathermoon.
The other is a lovely coloured yarn I bought at Unwind - by the local Tria Fata Fibre Arts - colour is called Belize.
 It is a 'mitts for chocolate' barter - win win!
