Fiddlehead Mittens Knit Along

Nancy, a friend of mine from back in the day in Maine, and I are embarking on a Fiddlehead Mittens Knit Along on Saturday. I haven't looked forward to a knitting project so much in quite a while. Nanc is taking a class at her local yarn store and sent me an email wishing that I still lived in Maine so I could go with her. I told her that I have had the pattern forever and would love to knit it along with her as she takes her classes. We'll chat about it and send progress photos online.  I've never done i-cord cast on so I may even learn something! (Won't Nancy's knitting teacher be surprised when she has to conferences me in by iPhone because I have questions! )

Here is my yarn:
The ash grey is the background color the 5 skeins on the bottom are the accent colors and the two balls of purple are 100% baby alpaca for the lining. Sah-weet!

The Countdown has begun!

Such beautiful colors! And sitting here in my chilly house, I can just imagine how warm they'll be (but impossible to type with ;-)
