I don't know why it took me so long to try stranded knitting.  It looked scary but it's not hard at all, in fact it's not anything, it's just knitting, and I know how to do this.  So that sentence didn't make the most sense, but I think if you've tried stranded knitting before you know what I'm talking about.  The only challenge was figuring out how to hold the yarn in my left hand (I'm an English knitter), and once I figured out a good way to do that I didn't have any problems.

And it's going well!

knitting mops

Who thinks that this pattern is a good idea?  I especially like how sophisticated the model is attempting to look in her mop-like mittens and hat.  Poor girl, she did her best with what they gave her...
