Kitty Kat wanted to know what color of Austerman Step I bought. Well, they only had one color, and fortunately I like it!
Also, I've been working on the fish mitten pattern, knitting up a new mitten as I go. I'm simplifying the design a bit and I'm trying to put as much detail into the instructions as I can. I'm using Microsoft Visio to create some line drawings of the mitered squares and the entrelac. The final file will be a PDF. I've written a pattern before and I'm a technical writer by trade, so this isn't such a stretch for me, just a lot of work.
Here's a progress shot.
I'm not sure how I feel about the handpainted colors for this pattern. I was hoping it would look like a goldfish but I guess I won't know for sure until I get further along into the body. This yarn is the "Fiery" that I ordered from Sundara Yarns.
Oh by the way, I learned something yesterday when I Googled "fish mittens". Don't try it if you've got kids in the room who can read. Can any one think of a better name for this pattern?
