(Anemoi) Mitten the First

While I expected to find color-work interesting to knit and the end results obviously pretty to look at, I never expected to find the wrong side of the fabric so utterly delightful. It’s a happy surprise that gives a thrill like finding that last chocolate hidden amid all the wrappers when you thought you had finished off the whole box (there, finally thought of the proper analogy. Hee.).

Now, fingers crossed that that I escape second-mitten syndrome to make it a pair. I'll just keep looking at Mitten One for motivation.

Oh how pretty! I hope you do make it to a pair, they would be so lovely to wear.

I'm finding myself increasingly drawn to the reverse side of fabrics, and colourwork is particularly interesting! (Not that I've got that far myself, but I do like looking at other people's...) xo

Nice job! I agree, the back is very interesting. On some patterns it even would make a good right side.

I loved looking at the inside as well M. Mitten the first looks great!

Very pretty, Marie. Just keep the finished mitten in front of you and you are sure to finish the second in no time.
