For now, let's talk about my Trenza Mitts (rav link)
Yarn: Cascade 220 superwash
Mods: reduced the central cable from 3 crossings to 2
This photo does justice to the cables but not to the color, which is a very dark purple. They're destined for my son's teacher. She said that she liked the colors purple and yellow, and I couldn't find it in me to combine them into one mitten, so purple it is!
