It's a Mystery....

So the knitters who hang out in the Ravelry Forum "Fingerless Glove Fanatics" decided they wanted to do a Mystery Mitt KAL. Having nothing else better to do (or nothing else I wanted to do), I came up with a design. Mitts are small, and it was challenging to come up with a design that could be broken into parts.

I had first wanted to something playing around with slip stitches and different colored yarn, but fell in love with a couple of ace stitch patterns in one of my books. So, part 1 could be the cuff of the mitt....

I also really liked the look of a picot hem instead of ribbing for a change. I used some Knit Picks Stroll I had in my stash. It's a nice start, I think! I'll post a picture of the next pat next Friday.
