|My Recess for Grownups Mittens|
After ripping out twice,( I tried double points, that didn't work for me and the second time I ripped I forgot how to count to 68) I managed to get started. Now it is after 10 at night and I could stay us till midnight knitting on these. I can't wait to get to the color work part. I am hoping some of the knitters at Serendipity will want to join me in this project. We have some very talented knitters that come on Saturday mornings and they know way more about color work than I do. My first problem is I don't really know how to read the pattern but I am willing to try and figure it out as I go. All those colored blocks in the shape of a mitten, how do I know where to change from the palm to the back. I am in hopes magic loop is going to help with that. I will be getting out a few Ann Budd books tonight for my bed time stories. Any way I am excited to learn something new in 2012. I have been wanting to become comfortable with color work for 3 years now, it is high time I get started. More pictures to come and progress reports.
