Alice in Wonderland- the Mittens!

I went to hang out with Red earlier this week, and she knew I had been having a rough week- so she got me some yarny goodness to help cheer me up a bit. It certainly worked!She got me some Baby Dale yarn to go with one of the coolest patterns I've ever seen for mittens- a pair of Alice in Wonderland colorwork mittens, with buttons and scalloped edges and adorableness that I can't wait to start! I'll do more photos while I knit the mittens- I think it'll look cooler seeing the pattern come out that way. After I get past the cable on my new sweater cast on and into the mindless stockinette, I'll start these mittens.I started knitting the Seneca pullover by brooklyntweed (another of his brilliant designs), although I was stupid and hit a self-inflicted snag today. I cast on and was already a couple of rows in before I realized that there was a twist in the sweater, so I spent a good chunk of knitting time today frogging and re-doing the sweater cast on. It's fixed now, but I hate that I wasted time on a stupid mistake.
Oh well- happens to the best of us, right?
