my basic mitten pattern from knit simple knitting workshops, i knit my mitties with queensland collection leche in red and mint, on size 5 needles.  it's a pretty quick knit.  it's a nice mitten for NaKniMitMo.

i duplicate stitched the snowflake design on the back of the mittens, per the chart in the pattern.  i really wish i could have charted it instead and knit the design as intarsia.  it's easy to do duplicate stitch on a flat piece - it's a bit of a PITA in a small enclosed tube.

i'm a happy girl.  :)

on a sad note, i saw that bev galeskas passed away over the holidays, from cancer.  she was a wonderful knit designer - i made many of her felted bags.  a sad loss to the fiber arts community.
