Not quite perfect as the rest of it, either because it was at the start of the round (probably) or because it was the same colour all the way up (possible). EIther way, it was definitely better than a purl would have been (we don't all have Eunny's tension right?) and nothing that didn't block out.
I think the colours are not only gorgeous but that the subtle pattern is quite nice. I think I like the one with purple ribbing best. I like the negative too, I did that with my first pair but it's better in these colours.

This thread seems to have picked up again, so here's my first almost finished mitt. It's been in this state for a few weeks, I procrastinate a lot Sad. Ends haven't been sewn in yet, and the thumb is still on safety pins.



I did knits instead of purls for the seams, but frankly, I wish I would have taken the time to figure out how to continue the colorwork pattern instead of doing seams. I also did less repeats above the thumb gusset as I didn't want the mitt to cover too much of my fingers as I tend to wear armwarmers while I work at the computer or play guitar.

He hee, I made one an extra repeat longer than the pattern says so I can keep one hand warmer (so can use the fingers better) or more useful (because not encumbered with more fabric).

It looks great! I am not sure that a jogless jog would work well enough to keep the pattern continuous, perhaps with a different colour pattern though... I think the seam stitches are a necessary evil to be honest, unless you can lessen them with a jogless jog technique and put it on the little-finger side...

I took out the seams completely. I figured if I'm knitting seamless why fake a seam?  I also used a (almost) worsted-weight yarn so  fewer stitches so fewer repeats and extended them to mittens. Other than that I followed her pattern exactly. Grin  I'll try to put up a pic in the next few days.

I've never had much luck with the jogless jog techniques and didn't want to try it in SC! So I felt one seam was necessary for me, but I have seen many people find the little-finger seam rides up and I didn't like it in the first place. I much prefer the seam stitch as a knit rather than a purl also. I have finished my 2nd pair, like these much better, just thumb ribbing to do, if I like this one after it is blocked (might have tightened my tension a bit on the second half) will finish thumb and wait for the cool months... hopefully I will find the first of the pair before then! I made that a full repeat longer at the fingers, sometimes I need more warmth or more manoeuvreability for one hand!
