Mmm, mittens!

I've been drawn to the idea of color knitting after seeing all of Kyra's gorgeous creations. I never really gave it serious thought until fellow knitter Judy came up with a source for this hard-to-find book.

I managed to get my hands on the next-to-last copy, so here I sit, committed now to at least giving this a try! I have to say, the thought of learning colorwork on teeny-tiny needles is a little intimidating. I ordered this yummy Nature Spun yarn, so I really have no excuse now for not casting on.

Tune in later to see if I get my courage up enough to really give this a go!

So what do you think of the book overall? Is it worth all the hype?

Yo, yo! The Studio has the Nature Spun Fingering now. I picked up 12 balls of it a couple days ago. I couldn't decide which ones so I just grabbed one of each of all the ones I liked! That book is absolutely in my top ten list and I have a LOT of knitting books. I've been shifting my concentration from yarn to books lately....urg

Wow, you're very lucky! I'm trying to get ahold of that books as well. I just called Velona, and they are already sold out with over 100 phone calls this past week. What is your opinion of the book?
