I'm knitting along with the Fingerless Glove Fanatics group on Ravelry. This month the theme is "Literary". It's a pretty open theme and people are knitting all sorts of mitts with either yarns or patterns inspired by books or poems.
I'm making "Midnight Dreary" by Kimberly Pieper, inspired by Poe's "The Raven". It's a pretty simple rib pattern mitt with a basic cable running along the back. Fun and easy. I've finished one and started the next, looking good so far!
