October sock club harvest

This is a great thing about the first of the month, at the moment: I get to open up a new package from Biscotte et Cie and wait for an e-mail announcing this month's project (complete with pattern!)

This charming duo (100% superwash merino) came with a pattern for a perfectly adorable pair of mittens decorated with a colourful gecko. I'm pretty sure I won't be making them with these skeins, though, in part because my winter coats are
a/ blinding hot pink and
b/ charcoal grey
and also, because every time I look at the deep brownish wine of the main yarn, I think socks.

The gecko yarn would make pretty awesome heels or cuffs or toes or some combination thereof, don't you think? with due consideration given to its yardage.

What can I tell you - we're in the middle of a long run of grey rainy autumn days, and cold feet make compelling arguments!

ps my stained glass butterflies are from Helena via Etsy - even more colourful when hanging on the window. Soooo pretty.
