floats. my new challenge.
i'm still working on the chevron love mittens. it's a good thing i'm head over heels in love with the pattern and the yarn, or this first mitten would have ended up thrown in a corner and left to become a den for dust bunnies...
i had to frog the first attempt, as i was pulling much too tightly on the floats during that first go round.
things are going more smoothly now, though i haven't had a whole lot of time to knit lately, much to my chagrin.
i can, however, share a finished knit with you. not surprisingly, it's another mitten set, and again, not a shocker, the pattern is nothing short of perfection.
i've now knit two pair of phenomenon. the first pair was to test knit the pattern for it's designer. i thought it was pretty great at that point, but after additional tweaking, the newest version of phenomenon is absolutely phenomenal.

it's a free pattern, but one you must have a ravelry account to access. a previously released pattern will do the job, but phenomenon mimics the patterned palm featured on the mittens used in the movie.
what challenges you as a knitter? colorwork? cables? finishing work? carving out time to devote to your craft?
