Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

No duplicate

Not only because it has some unique, erm, "design features" which I hope to have learned enough to skip on number two, but because I haven't done the accent duplicate stitches in yellow yet.

Back:
(My favorite pumpkin is beginning to get orange.) And finally, a closeup of the lumpiest (unblocked) two-color work in my house:


Next I'm going to cast on for the first Cobblestone sleeve, and use finishing that as a goal before I cast on for mitten number two. I hope I don't forget the lessons I learned on this first one by then!

I love the colors you chose! I made a pair of those earlier this year. Been contemplating putting the snail pattern on a pair of matching socks.

Oh, cute! I love the color combination, and the snails are adorable.

I've really been meaning to knit these mittens. Thanks for the motivation. Yours look wonderful. Give them a strict blocking and all will be well.

Oh, in case I didn't get this up before, it's the Norwegian Snail Mittens from the Knitter's Book of Yarn. I don't know if I'm up for a whole colorwork sweater -- the Kauni cardigan is next -- but a project of this size is fun fun fun.
