a pile of ends

so today i cut all the ends in those Covered With Color mittens. now i just need to severely block the cuff to lay flat...tricky, tricky!

then i knit the right front of my vest, and here's a craptastic picture of an idea of the fringe i have:


and then i WOVE THEM ALL IN. figured i may as well get started. my knitting MO has changed...now i have been loving every single step of this project. it rocks my socks that i am liking it, and doing all these things as i go and modifying every little thing i can...go figure. i will need another section of colour for the fronts, but i want to get the back to the same level first to see exactly how much length i need. like it?

Nice vest! Just stopped by to check out your Covered with Color mittens. I love the original colors (unfortunately I thought they'd clash with my olive green winter wardrobe). I've never gotten the cuffs on my son's not to roll but I've decided to call that a "design element." Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!

Helen! That's so beautiful. I definitely have to brave up and try fairisle soon. I keep meaning to... the two-handed thing scares me more than a little.
