Back to mitten knitting
My poor mitten got set aside when I was side tracked by the new shawl last week.
Tonight I picked it up again. It only took a couple rounds to see the start of the medallion take shape in the first picture (colour is off in this pic - yarn is blue not green). I did a few more rounds and as I did the cables, I really tried to pay attention to how the cable is formed and why the knits and purls are knit in the order that they are to form the cable. I really like deciphering and understanding the patterns I'm knitting. It takes a little time but it's worth it.
