As seen on my Ravelry profile page:

Six socks, two pairs of mittens and one scarf. There are no great surprises here, as those of you who know me as a knitter can attest (I have yet to be drawn to the Sweater Side, though some are trying.)

All that aside, it was the colours in this composite that really caught my eye -- purple, green and brown. It seems that now I'm even coordinating my finished objects to match.

If you don't recognize the mitts in the top left corner, that's because they were knit together in a hurry. I did this mainly so my gauge wouldn't go and change on me over time (which for some reason I'm still wary of, though this might all be in my head.) They're Nancy Bush's Helgi's Mittens from Folk Knitting in Estonia.

The yarn is Knit Picks Palette in Ivy and Verdant Heather -- one ball of each. It's hard to argue with a $4 pair of mittens (though their value ultimately rises considerably by the time one holds a finished pair.) That's the magic of mittens.

love the mittens. I can't believe the yarn only cost $4! Another reason to be impressed with them....

The mittens are gorgeous & I love the color combination. I am not really into sweater knitting too & the only garment I knit are vests as they are quick & seamless.
