Slowly but Surely

I'm on row what, 19, of the fair isle mitten...just about at the place where I can slip the thumb stitches on a holder for a while. The good news is that I think it looks ok...and also that I enjoy doing fair isle. The bad news is that I have no idea if it will actually 'work' or not (ie am I carrying the yarn loosely enough or will I have a wee straightjacket on my hand.

The other good news is that I'm definitely getting fair isle out of my system, and I have no desire to do an entire sweater or something that requires steeks. I may do an EZ fair isle just because it seems within my realm of skills and...no seams! But we'll see. Lots of fair isle rows left on this project.
