Decadence mittens are now live!

I know -- I can hardly believe it either -- but the Decadence mittens are finished and the pattern is now live.Indulge some of your favourite 19th century vices with these lushly ornate mittens. Hidden among the Art Nouveau-inspired swirls of foliage (or are those curls of smoke?) are instruments of delicious deviant delights – poppy pods and absinthe spoons.

Get the pattern here on Ravelry. Give it a day or so to appear in my Etsy shop.Now I'm off to go locate my copy of Birch and to wrangle some Kidsilk Night, all because I was lenient enough to get sucked into the whole Knitting Olympics thing. Yep.

If you're looking for me, I'll be the one crying beneath the pile of tangled sparkly mohair.

Those are amazing! Theres something pretty great about mixing old fashioned vices with knitting, there might even be a word for it if I was awake enough (besides kinda kickass).

Super pretty!! I love the details.

I'm with you on the lace knitting thing. I'm hoping to knit my mom's shawl for the wedding during the Olympics. Too bad I can't take advantage of my 2 hour bus ride this afternoon to work on it :P
