See, I promised...
Here is mitten as of today...a 'far cry' from its appearance Sunday morning. I just could hardly put it down!
Except for the name panel, it is the same pattern as Lizbeth Upitis and Schoolhouse Press chose for the KAL. I had thought that it was not my colors, then I realized that it's the same colors I was swatching with in J&S 2 ply Shetland yarn last summer when I was working on my fair isle pattern. The pattern hasn't gotten past inordinate swatching. It's now in hibernation.
For the lettering ("nancy" on the front, "nj" on the back) my trusty celtic lettering was utilized, then tweeked with trusty pencil and graph paper.
Today's predicted storminess may provide more mitten moments.
