Knit Mittens! by Robin Hansen
I don't particularly like how the patterns are written--rather like a chart of directions which I don't find especially easy to follow. Despite that, I like the patterns themselves and plan on making several of them. They're fairly easy and are all knit from wool which I also like and the colors chosen are vibrant which is appealing. I would recommend this book and, if you like charted directions, this book would be perfect!
My color for February is red. I'd thought of using pink, but I decided to save it for a month in spring. There is so little light at this time of year and the skies are so dreary, I really yearn for bright, cheerful colors. Soon the crocuses will come peeking up out of the ground, then the tulips and daffodils. I'm looking forward to that!
