Brown and Gray.

The time of the year has come where most of my knitting turns to gift knitting. I generally collaborate with my giftees to ensure that they are completely satisfied with their gift. I would hate to spend time knitting a gift for someone if they weren't going to wear it. Usually, people have unique and interesting requests and it is fun to make things that I wouldn't normally choose to make.

Apparently this year it's all about brown and gray. Hmmm.

Of course this is perfectly fine. Look at this fine example of these beautiful colors in nature:

Heathery gray is awesome. And I love brown! But it does get a bit boring to knit brown and gray all the time. I might have to cast on something multi-colored just to keep my sanity. Endpaper Mitts??? Of course, there is always my sister's gift... I don't know how I agreed to this...

That's going to be Beatrix. Unfortunately, I had to go down to a US3 to make gauge. Gulp. Um... excuse me... I better get back to the needles.
