In any case, this photo does terrible things to the color of the mitten, but just as I found something white to use as a background the camera batteries went dead, and photographing a mitten just wasn't serious enough to motivate me to charge the batteries. It's supposed to be a deep red. Maybe it will come out better when I have finished both mittens and can have Tommy try them on.
I am sure I will make the other one very soon (probably tomorrow). In fact I made another today but didn't like how it turned out, so I stopped just before finishing it off and started over with my own made-up pattern, which worked out much better. I did offer to add stripes, but Tommy wanted them all red, which was fine. I just hope they fit!
...I know I'm far from it now, but some day I would like to learn the art of Fair Isle knitting and make something like these. I love the look of many of the Scandinavian designs out there. I probably wouldn't have anything with which to actually wear them, but at least they would be pretty to look at while knitting. =)
