I have been participating in the NaKnitMitMo (National Knit Mittens Month or some such) KAL over on Ravelry, and it has been a lot of fun. I have never done a KAL before, because I usually come upon them way too late, or when I am knitting something completely different and haven’t the time to add another project. This time, I already had the mittens on the needles. So, what am I knitting?
Spillyjane’s super fun Swedish Fishmitts. I have wanted to cast these on for some time, but the Christmas knitting had to come first. They are my first attempt at colourwork, and coming along rather well I think. Want a close up?
Of course, my queue is now brimming with mitten patterns, having browsed through all the stuff knit by others. Need some mitten inspiration?
For the Twilight fans – or cable fans – Bella’s Mittens

It’s (still) cold out – mittens are a good thing.
