I have finished my Northern Lights mittens as a practice piece for the SFCKAL. The pattern is by Joyce Chinn exclusively for Knit Picks www.knitpics.com. The yarn used was Knit Picks Palette, a 2ply Peruvian wool. This was my first use of corrugated ribbing and I like the effect. It is not as elastic as a regular 2 x 2 rib, much firmer.

Now on to a swatch for the Northwest Sunset vest!

Nice job! I really like corrugated ribbing.

How did you like the Palette yarn? That's what I'm using for my SFCKAL sweater, but I haven't swatched yet.

You did a great job on the Northern Lights mittens. I came across these after the pattern was no longer available. I was wondering if you would be willing to share your pattern. Look forward to hearing from you. Tara at 2binmt@gmail.com
