    A picture of many colors proclaims images of many thoughts. 
    -Donna A. Favors

    It's a good thing I have tiny hands, or I'd be inclined to keep these mittens for myself. I am totally in love,* with the colors, the snowflakes, and the awesome twist on a very traditional mitten pattern.

    Wacky Selbu Mittens
    Pattern: Selbu Mittens from Folk Mittens (check for errata!) with color idea stolen from Leigh
    Yarn: Noro Kureyon, about 1.5 balls for the background, and Patons Classic Merino in Winter White, about 1/2 ball for the foreground
    Needles: US 3
    Notes: See the errata! But now that I've figured it out, I do like the Norwegian thumb gore. It's a combination gored thumb and peasant thumb that I can see having many applications in stranded patterns, and fits better than a standard peasant thumb.

    *Yes, I've been in love with all of my knitting lately, why do you ask?

    Very fun! Thanks for the heads up on the errata - I got that book for Christmas, so I'll have to look it up.

    Wow, those turned out great! What a cute pattern and the colors are great. I need to get started on my fingerless gloves so I have something to show for January. :)

    You are not the only one that loves them. Who ever gets then can show them off proudly. Now on to the next pair, this time for you.
