Along with the Tangled Yoke, there’s another knit that’s been sitting in my queue. I’d been hesitant to blog about it because this project has already broken the interweb once, but now that the pattern is for sale I won’t be contributing to the mania.

The Hello Yarn Fiddlehead Mittens Kit.

The Fiddlehead kit

I almost don’t want to take the skeins out of their perfect little cardboard home. Gorgeous! I haven’t cast on yet, but it’s definitely in the works for this week. The Kit with the yarn is a little tricky to get your hands on, but Adrian has a ton of suggested yarn substitutions. The best part? If you don’t want to spring for the kit, you can buy the pattern PDF through Ravelry. The genius bit is it stays in your Rav library so you never have to worry about losing the file. Brilliant, eh?

it's totally worth the wait.

    Dude. I just want to say that I submitted that comment before I noticed the title of your post. It must say something about the power of this color combo that we both had precisely the same squeee! response. (Though I think yours has more Es? It’s *your* blogspace, after all.)

    I was coveting Mafia’s Greeeeen! Kit at SPA. Your photos certainly captures the color perfectly. Congrats on the acquisition!

    OK, I’ve admired these on the Hello Yarn blog for while but now? Totally jading on them. Oh those colors!
