Out of character

What on earth is this? Could it really be? This goes against everything you’ve ever known about me. Me, the pink princess, why am I knitting blue (actually petrol) and black and in February nonetheless? And color work on top of that. There is no sense in this, no obvious answer. Have I gone crazy? Have I lost my mind?

No, there is a reasonable explanation. Remember the mittens I forgot? Well, I got a reminder and bad conscience and here I am, knitting a pair of color work mittens in petrol and black, all according to the receiver’s wishes.

I can’t wait till I’m done.
