I just couldn't resist more of the KnitPicks yarn. Here's a pair of mittens I started earlier this week. The pattern is from the Fall 2003 Interweave Knits.

Here's a view of the back and the thumb gusset. I've never done any stranded colorwork before. Actually, it's pretty fun. The pattern is basically a chart which I scanned and enlarged so it's really easy to follow. The hardest part is to remember to twist the two color together over long stretches so there's no long pieces of loose yarn inside. Fun project!

I love the look of your mittens. What a lovely color combination...classic! Enjoy the stranded knitting but be warned that it can be addicting.
