I am so fortunate to be in a little group of knitters, and we love a challenge...this is a project that I am still working on. It was reading a blogging friend's post: Not yet mitten weather, that got me looking further into colour work. I have fought shy, much preferring lace when I want a challenge. So firstly its thanks to knitting friends for 'stretching' me into this area.
The thread then lead me onto Be*mused where I was thoroughly interested in the stashes of Latvian Mittens.
Also I have discovered that one can knit a braid..and have them as interesting elements in knitting on circular needles. This is where I shall be spending quite a few hours learning more, so many thanks to Klionik
