Weekly WIP Report - A day early

Before I start, I must say this: THANK GOD THE HABS WON! I would have been so pissed if they had lost after leading 3-0!

The only WIP I feel like sharing this week is my newest one: Eunny Jang's Endpaper mitts. It's sort of my first fair isle project (I've tried fair isle socks before but I failed miserably and frogged). I thought it would be a slow project because of the colour work, but it goes surprisingly quickly.

I'm using the leftovers from the Fearless Fibers yarn I used for Roza's socks. I have tons of leftovers, probably enough for another (shorter) pair of socks. But I chose to use it for the mitts instead. The grey is one of the three colours I had used in the failed fair isle socks attempt. I don't remember what brand it is. Patons Kroy maybe?

I love the two colours together.

Also, one of my other projects, the brown striped socks, is coming along nicely. I turned the heel and I'm now at the gusset. I just don't feel like taking a picture.

Those mitts look great! I love the colours, especially that particular shade of pink.

I still love the mitts. I've been looking at a lot of people's colour choices online and I think the low-er contrast combos (like yours - if you'll permit me to describe it that way) look the very best. Glad to hear and see that it's such a successful project.

It looks great! I agree with everyone, that pink and grey look great together. The simple pattern is really nice.
