What a fun night of Olympic excitement last night! Snowboarding, Downhill and Short Track. And now we are officially super-fans here in our house!
Vancouver 2010 Red Mittens. Hubster came home with two pairs of these sought after mittens yesterday. One of the perks when you work for a Canadian company.
I also have a little knitting to show you. The Ulmus shawl doesn’t look much different but I did manage to bang out a hat. It’s part of the Woolympics/Woolalong that sprang up on The Knitters Review forums on Ravelry. Clara is every bit justified in her love affair with cormo. It is decadent! Sproingy, soft and wonderful to knit!
Pattern: Button-Tab Hat from i like lemons
Yarn: Elsa Wool Company 100% Mountain-grown Cormo wool, Worsted yarn woolen spun (approx. 120 yds). Color: medium grey
Needles: Size 7 Addi Turbo 16 inch cord, size 6 bamboo dpns for the crown.

My Sweet Fern Mitts have been waiting for months for their matching hat and here it is, a day in the making.
Off to be monogomous to my Ulmus now. The kids’ vacation has cut into concentration time.
How much longer do I have? (I have a pair of socks for my other event, Sock Hockey, too.)
