Mm-m-malabrigo Mitts

I sent off my Pay It Forward package earlier this week; since Dawn has received it I can share another FO!

Malabrigo MittsPattern: Mm-m-malabrigo Mitts by Anne Mancine (Ravelry link)
Started: Tuesday, March 30, 2010
Finished: Sunday, April 18, 2010
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in 24 Vermillion (Cast-on with 32 Jewel Blue)
Needles: Size US 7

Malabrigo MittThis was a fun and quick knit, and you can’t go wrong with Malabrigo…so nice and soft :)

I could probably make another pair of these mitts with the yarn I have left. I’m thinking a pair in blue with the cast-on in red would be good for me!


Happy Earth Day!

From Earth Day Network:

Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.

I’ve been doing a good job of bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, but I need to be better about bringing them to Target and other places I go for “just a few things”. I’m also making sure we conserve energy, recycle more, and I’m even being more careful with things I buy for the cats.

What are you doing for Earth Day?
