So I got the bright idea a couple of months ago to try and do a colorwork project, after 4 failures, I think this one is finally going to have a good result. Im doing a pair of stranded colorwork mittens, I'm still on the first one, and im almost done with the thumb gusset, I just hope everything will go alright when I start decreasing the top. Also, there is a nice festival going on in Germany called "Karneval" which is basically the German Mardi Gras, on my way today to go buy some new needles (Symphony wood DPN's 4mm...fancay) I saw no less than 3 people passed out on the street (in the snow) from too much beer. I know this hasn't much to do with knitting, but it was impressive so I thought I would post it. I put a picture of the mitten in progress below so you can take a look. I'm a bit concerned because it seems a little tight if I try to put my hand into it, Im wondering if Im making the floats too tight when I go from needle to needle and need to loosen up a bit, but I'm terrified of laddering and making my hard work look like crap. I'm hoping the stitches will stretch and relax once they're off the needle and I block the mittens (I haven't ever done blocking, so this should be interesting.) Let me know what you think of my work in progress! Thanks Ya'll!
