FO Friday: WIP list returns!

knit art 3

Well The Olympics is over but the Soper Creek Yarn Challenge is still on till March 1 at noon. This is a regular event at our LYS.  We each purchase a parcel of the featured yarn, in this case 100gms of Briggs & Little 100% Canadian Wool. The Community is invited to vote for their favourite item.

The Challenge: Use both colours in your project (red/white). More yarn can be added if necessary.

My entry was my “Oh Canada Mittens” (bottom Left)
