Mittens Not Bombs?
We had a couple of friends over for Friday crafternoon this week (Happy Birthday Melissa!) and made bath bombs. I used a Martha Stewart recipe, but I made them with Witch Hazel instead of water. I like this combination as it's harder to accidentally make a foaming mess. I went a little overboard with the colors so these are pretty bright. There's blue lavender, yellow lemon, and pink geranium. The slight cracking is probably because I put these on the counter by the hot stove and they dried too quickly.

And I did get a start on something mittenish today. It's a lovely free pattern, A Bird in the Hand. (the link is to the PDF) It's hard to tell that this is brown and light grey yarn (darn Wintertime picture taking!) and that was after abandoning my original planned color combo for a substitute from the stash with better contrast. See how it says "fly"?
I really can't get the hang of the two handed colorwork. Does anyone have a resource to recommend? I do both colors in my left hand, and it actually works pretty well other that having to untwist the yarns every so often, but I feel like I am knitting this the *wrong* way, which frankly seems pretty stupid when I say it now, since I like the end result and it works for me.
