Casting On

These mittens will be for my sister-in-law for Christmas. No worries she knows they are coming. I decided to let her choose the pattern and colors because why just guess what someone would like.

The pattern is Citrus from Kris Patay of Kris Knits. It isn't a pattern I would have chosen for myself, but I think it will be fun to knit.

This orange, in real life, is actually much less red, but you get the idea, it's pretty.

The yarn is Digit - the orange was maize heathered (I dyed it) and the natural is their ecru solid. I inherited this yarn in a crafty swap and so far I am really enjoying knitting with it.

My only hesitation with this project is that I cast onto US 0 for this project. Yes, that is correct size 0 or metric 2 - I love how the knitting looks, the fabric look so fine and neat, but I hope I have the endurance. Honestly, this is probably good training for socks on my zeros because that is what I am really excited to knit on these beautiful rosewood zeros (thanks again Claire!).

I had better get back to work...
