Victoria I...And The Last

I finished my first Victoria mitten this weekend.

Hmmm. I'm not 100% in love with it.

Maybe it was the tedium I experienced making it.
Maybe I don't know when I'll actually wear a purple striped fingerless glove.
Maybe I'm afraid of all the ends to weave in.

Yes, I'm definitely afraid of those ends.

I hate to frog a few days work, but this purple yarn needs to be made into something more wearable. Purple striped mittens would match my lovely Flicker hat, but aren't exactly what I'd call practical. I will revisit this pattern, however, next time I'll make them solid in a neutral color and I'll knit in the round.

Bye, Victoria. It was fun while it lasted.
