Meanwhile…

I’m really excited about two projects that I want to get started, but the yarn hasn’t arrived. In fact, although I ordered it nearly a week ago, it still hasn’t shipped. Grrrr.

So, because I needed something to work on, I decided to tackle another pair of mittens from the Woodland Winter Mittens kit, which I purchased from the same company that hasn’t shipped my order. What strange power do they have over me?

This is the 4th of the 6 winter month patterns – March. Regular readers will know that I’ve already completed October, January and February. October, November and December are my favorite designs, but I’m saving the latter two for later. I do really like the color palette of the March mittens. Very brown and green.

The March pattern features bulbs pushing out of the ground. The picture here shows the patterned palm side. It’s not easily memorize-able, so I’m having to pay close attention. But, I started this Tuesday afternoon and have been able to get this much done in two evenings of knitting. As in the October pair, I’m going to try and add a few stitches to the thumbs to make them a little more roomy.
