road to china ruby mittens

I'm calling these my Ruby Mittens. Perhaps I need some slippers to join them.
It was my first time making bobbles. I quite like them.
The yarn is a combination of baby alpaca, cashmere, camel and silk. Luxurious. Dreaming of the outfits and colors I will wear to pair them with perhaps a coal gray wool skirt and creamy white top. Chocolate brown would be quite nice too.

Pattern- Emerald Fingerless Mittens by Lucy Sweetland.

Here I'm holding a photo of my maternal grandmother at the beach...my namesake. I never met her but I've always felt a deep connection.
