Christmas Knitting

I've always loved color or stranded knitting. My technique is still clumsy but hopefully will improve in the coming year. Because I can only see myself carrying two colors across a row for the foreseeable future, I was happy to receive Terri Shea's book Selbuvotter - Biography of a Knitting Tradition for Christmas. Last week, before getting the book, I started one of Charlene Schurch's patterns with the help and encouragement of members of the Stranded knitting group on Ravelry.
Pattern: Pattern No. 1
Designer: Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport
Needles: Circular; 2.25 mm for cuff and 2.50 mm for the body of the mitten
