So, yes -- the William It Was Really Nothing/blue faience hippo mitts are finished. I'm attempting to get up to the studio any minute now to polish off the pattern, but I keep getting distracted. Fear not; the pattern will be released today. You will be notified.
I just can't resist posting pictures of my new chairs, seen here in situ in the parlour:These were something of an impulse-buy -- yes -- but I could not bring myself to say no. As you can see, they are ready for the festivity of tonight's annual Fondue Feast.

Because I know some of you will inevitably inquire about the bag and brooch in the top-most image, allow me to preemptively indulge you.
The bag was custom-made for me by bayan hippo and the brooch is a Petula Precious by Miss Zaza. I love them together -- it's like each was made for the other.
Finally, some knitting content:It's my Saroyan scarf -- a rare knit for myself. I'm about halfway done.
Apologies for the (possible) overuse of the Morrissey-isms; I must have the ol' Mozzer on the brain these days.
