A Challenge

I joined the Stranded Colorwork Challenge.
What are your projects for this knitalong?
I will be knitting Eunny's Endpaper Mits and maybe reknit Eunny's Deep V-Neck Vest.
Is this your first colorwork project? If it isn't, what was your first, and has it survived the test of time?
This is not my first stranded color work project, I knit Eunny's Deep V-Neck Vest last spring/summer however the pattern needs tweeking to fit the way that I want it to look. It was a quick knit and a great learning project however since it was knit in the round with steeks it was impossible to try on to make sure that it fit correctly. I'm short waisted so the arm holes were way too big. Plus I had issues with row guage which did not help at all. I guess you could say it has survived the test of time because it has never been worn.

A couple of the girls I knit with here are making those mitts too; it looks like a great pattern.

I'm going to attempt some Latvian mittens for my stranded project.
