I may have found a contender to make up for the 'mitt kit' I was drooling over at Stitches East but just couldn't see spending $38 on. It was a vine pattern in two colors of wool yarn, very lovely, but I *know* I could kit something up pretty close to it for much less so I passed on it. (Again. I drooled over it LAST year too. I just like what I like, I guess. lol)
But hellllllllllllo new mitt pattern from the always-wonderfully-delicious Jared of Brooklyn Tweed:

Who needs vine mitts when you can have Herringbone ones?
I was also eyeballing this Latvian Mitten book:
It's $25 but has eleven billionity patterns in it, each one more complex than the next so 1) it should keep me busy for a long time and 2) should be a challenge (I do so love a little knitterly challenge).
It's terribly cold outside and yesterday it actually SNOWED here (enough to stick around too!) so is it any wonder I have mittens on the brain? :)
