Two Color Knitting!

After a false start (why, no, I'm not particularly good at reading directions, what of it?) and having to reduce my needle size down to a 1.5 from a 3 (!), here is my beginning on the Cat Mittens:

Not quite sure what it is, but I get going in this Fair Isle/Nordic knitting and I can't put it down (it helped that I haven't felt well today, so pretty much holed up and vegged a bit...)

Here's the palm - yes, I've got that waste yarn in there for the after thought thumb (which you'll remember I dislike?)

These are going to be purr-fect with my quilted jacket (hope I can finish them quickly...

Not that the color scheme is familiar or anything?

Ooh! Ooh, wow! I love that color combination, and your knitting is gorgeous :) I'm with you - there's something about that kind of colorwork that's compelling. I knitted those mittens WAY faster than I thought I would!

Feel better soon :)

How cool is that! Meowmie is talking about knitting/crocheting another cat sweater (remember the Mitz in hers?) Snort, snort...I don't think so!!!

Are you seeing the increase in skill that I am from the last two color mittens? Not that those were bad, but these are great!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
