New Beautiful Mittens Begun
Isn't it lovely? :)
The color actually showed up pretty well in this picture, even though the flash messed the wood all up. It's cool eggplant/purple/other colors variegated. I've had almost a whole week and this is all I've gotten done, kind of pathetic but in my defense I had to do a lot of swatching to figure out my guage (turns out I need to use size 3 where the pattern suggests 7 - suspicious? I think so...) and I've been crazy busy with last minute trip stuff.
Once again I should let you know I will not be at knitting this week - but I will next week, I'm sure I'll need a dose of sanity with only two days left before I go at that point! Speaking of which, any good plane knitting ideas? I might bring the mittens, since I'm positive they won't be finished by then, though I don't know what TSA thinks of size 3 metal double-points...
