Totally Distracted

Must resist swatching for these:

Example 1

Example 2

These are the North Star Mittens from the book "Knit Mittens."

Are they cute or what?! It'd be a great first fair isle project, it'd be something portable, and it'd use stash yarn.

Who am I kidding. I'm totally justifying them. I think I'll leave my mittens book open on my coffee table to make me move my butt a little faster on my home sweet home shawl.

    Good luck on those mittens! I bought some of that same yarn for a similar type of mitten -- still need to make a pair! I personally like the cinnamon colour and the cream, but that's me :o) The green and blue go great together - I made a pair of socks out of them!
