Fun colourwork accessories are my faves from the offerings over at freshisle's ravelry shop.
Hailing from the great land that is Manitoulin Island, freshisle likes to create her hand-dyed yarns naturally, with local plants and flowers. I see she's also had some traditional Canadiana influence some of her work; here, the pictured Curling Rock Mittens and the super funny (and inventive!) Curling Rock Hat. I really like the colours of the mittens!
Here are the All You Need is Love mittens. Such great, classic, colourwork. I particularly like how she's chosen to create the samples in the opposing colours.
I think many of your will enjoy the Winter is Coming mitts; especially the pattern photo with the dog!
Check out her other work; there's an array of pieces there, some of which are a nod to the great Harry Potter!
