some stuff done and some gone

It was garage sale day today which provided the perfect venue for some color on color mitten knitting...in between people watching that is. What a trip. I think it should be mandatory that people be forced to watch themselves on video from time to time to promote some self-awareness. Things I heard people say and saw them do was seriously frightening.
I did manage to sell a bunch of furniture and other stuff that will simplify our impending move of house. Bad news is there's lots more I need to purge.
Anyway...here's mitten number one, awaiting embellishment (which, btw is going to be ubercute):

It might look a little weird, but if you're familiar with the Color on Color scarf, you'll get that it's all about color and pattern, and this was my answer to having a bunch of yarn left that was screaming to be used.

And in other yarn news, my fab pal Carrie gifted me with this yesterday:

That's the promises-to-be-beautiful color #100. Our plan is to have a sock-along but we haven't come to a consensus on pattern yet. Whatever we end up doing, it's going to be great, and perfect timing as I'vebeen thinking about starting a new pair of socks as the alternate project to Teva Durham's Turtleneck Shrug from Scarf Style that I'm itching to start.

Comments:
The mitten turned out FAB! I can't wait to see what you do to it next.
