This was the first fair isle-type pattern I've ever made and they turned out to not be too difficult. Here's the link to the pattern:

http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/mittens/snowdrift.htm

I went line by line on the chart, crossing out the lines as I went. I'm left-handed and I knit in reverse so I made a few errors, but that just adds characteristic. I was more confident on the second mitten so it's a lot tighter than the first, but I love how they turned out.

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

Gotta love a mitten with personality.
My first fair isle mittens, I knit a lot looser on the second one! How funny.
