I first heard about the Tosh Merino Light Tea Cakes kit from Jody at Savannahchik. I can't remember if I bought it the same afternoon that I saw it, or if I waited a day, but I had to have that kit fast. It was very much to my liking-- 12 colors of Tosh Merino Light in oranges and browns, with a packet of lemon ginger tea and a pattern for the Modicum Mitts.
I determined the order that I liked, and knit with them lined up on my lap.
I must have been enchanted with them blocking, because I took this photo. I only vaguely remember taking it last fall.
And the result?
Lovely, although they are a little small for me. I should have knit the larger size. But I kind of don't care, because I enjoyed so much knitting them. Seeing them now, or feeling them in my jacket pocket, is a reminder of that happiness.
I used the bits of yarn leftover for a couple of other things. I knit a case for my husband's new phone.
I just would use a color completely up before moving to another one. He uses the case all the time, and it's kept a nice sheen and stitch definition.
And finally, I covered a few of our keys. The key to our front door is very similar to the one to the side entrance, and knitting a little case for the front door key lets me find it easily in the dark. Also, it makes me happy.
All that happiness from one kit? Perhaps I should consider getting another one in a different range of colors.
