Snails on my mittens

Oh, things are afoot here at Pittsworth Manor. Just look at what happened (and will continue to happen) today:More mittens -- this time with snails on. Schnecke clearly approves.

As for me, I'm just in love with the colours..and the yarn. Again I'm using Sunday Knits' yarns -- the blue is 3-ply Eden in Aqua, the grey is 3-ply Brigadoon in Stone and the brown is 3-ply Angelic in Nut.

And then I started thinking...where have I seen these colours before? As in, lately? At which point it occurred to me that once again I'm being unconsciously influenced by my surroundings. Observe:These two Pewabic Pottery mugs are among some of my recent acquisitions, and we are inseparable. They are the epitome of Arts and Crafts -- both beautiful and functional -- and also (for me) wonderfully local. I can't wait to inflict my new quince green tea upon them -- I'm sure they'll understand.
