Sinister, because I started with the left mitten. Anybody else take Latin in high school? Super useful in daily life. I took two years and enjoyed it immensely. None of this is sarcasm - I really did, and I really do find it useful!
Also sinister because this design is not approved for all audiences:
I'm making these as a little KAL with my friend Alicia. We meant to do these last year, but didn't get started soon enough for the cold weather, so we shoved it off to this year. We cast on together on Friday via a Google Hangout since we weren't able to get together in real life.
I've finished the corrugated rib on this first mitten, and am ready to move on to the chart. Having fun so far, although these needles are a little slippery. I'm using two skeins from my stash: one of Starmore Campion (blue) and one of Fortissima Socka (magenta - which matches my winter coat).
I didn't do a gauge swatch, and cast on with the recommended needle. There's a chance they may end up being a tad big on me, but if they are that's OK - I'd rather have them too big than too small, because I can always knit an inner lining or felt them slightly. Both fixes would give added warmth, and that's always a good thing.
One of these days I need to sit down and wrangle all my knitting WIPs into one place and make myself a list. I have a lot more going on than I've documented on Ravelry . . . oops!
