one knit mitt

I finished the first of my fingerless mittens last night. My cursory reading of the pattern led to the increases being in the wrong place, and offset instead of symmetrical, but I’m surprisingly un-bothered by this imperfection. Besides, there’s the second mitten in which to get it right.

Here’s the close-to-finished mitt:

    looks like your own pattern, yes? when you change colors so often, do you get floats on the back?

    The color pattern was gleaned from a book called Knitting in the Nordic Tradition.

    I carry the unused color along the back pretty tightly, the way Kaffe Fassett does, so there are no large floats I might catch my fingers on while putting on the mittens.
