She Treads Lightly

One of the things I am trying to do this year is broaden my knitting techniques. These fingerless mitts have a lateral or Vikkel Braid. It could not figure out how to do this braid at first, but after looking at a couple of videos and picture tutorials, the light bulb went on. As usual, I was making it harder than it really was. I like how this braid looks. The Linen stitch adds interest too.

Technically, I finished these mitts on 4/29. I stayed up all night and watch the Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. Since I wanted to blog about the wedding on 4/30, I chose to post these the day before since I never went to sleep between the two events.
