Hands-Won't be Covered

I've been knitting just a garter stitch mindless bit of scarf.  If you come across me knitting this, please don't offer to "challenge me" by insisting that I do your wonderful pattern.  I know what I'm doing.  I'm keeping my hands busy so I don't punch you.

Speaking of hands, I'm supposed to be working on a beautiful pair of cabled mitts modeled after the infamous pair Bella wore in the movie Twilight.  I'm doing it as part of a knit-a-long. 

Photo totally swiped from the movie Twilight
It's not going so well.  I'm thinking bright yellow is not a good match for vampire and werewolf enticing mittens.
I swear, I have more done, but I think I'm done

I mean really, I'm supposed to be a famed zombie slayer.  The last thing I want should be to attract more trouble in the form of love lorn vampires and werewolves.  Especially since  my last run in with werewolves was not pretty.

Garter stitch is one of my most favorite stitches to knit (flat. in the round is annoying). I like that yellow for Bella's mittens.

I agree with Elizabeth...zombies and werewolves will be frightened by the beautiful yellow plus I was told at Fiber Fest if you don't like the color you can always over dye it once completed.

I love the mittens...now to learn how to cable.

I say keep both projects going - It's always good to have alternatives.
Besides, I think you will like Bella's mittens - I made a pair last winter, and think I'm going to make another. Once I did one mitten, the pattern made more sense.
