Easter treats

I have a couple of mitten patterns underway - one fingerless and cabled, the other a pair of closed mittens with colourwork.

I can't show you the cabled ones as I'd like to try to submit them for some sort of publication, however, if anyone would be interested in a sneak preview, then I am looking for a test knitter!*

The colourwork mittens, on the other hand, are aimed at using up some of my stash (which mostly consists of odd balls and half balls) and I'm more than happy to show off how they're coming along.

Although I'm just using up colours from my stash they're somewhat inspired by some of the spring flowers that have burst out everywhere - especially the wisteria which looks and smells amazing.

I hope you're all having a lovely Easter weekend! I'm continuing to work on my mittens whilst watching last week's Lewis and munching on Easter egg then later we're off to the Reebok to watch the Whites take on Arsenal. Hoping (probably somewhat naively) for a backlash after our 5-0 tonking against Stoke last weekend.
