Endpaper Mitts

Just a quick note about yesterday's blog before I show you the mitt as of right now - thanks so much for all the complements, particularly on the zipper!  I made the zipper exactly as the pattern directed (and it wasn't hard), and that's how it came out.  Like I mentioned, the pattern is very well written and photographed so if you just follow the steps, you'll end up with a cute bag and a perfect zipper.  Auntiemichal and Madeline left comments with a link to a pattern by the same designer - it's not the exact pattern I used, but it looks very similar if you're looking for a pattern.  The zipper in the finished bags look the same.  I almost wonder if my pattern was discontinued and this pattern is a newer version of it (I can't remember when I bought it, but it was a while ago).  I can't see a designer having two patterns in their lineup that are so similar.
As you can see, I've got the thumb stitches set aside on a stitch holder, so now I'm working the top part of the mitt.  I love the way the colorwork pattern kind of fades in and out (due to the varigated yarn I'm using with the navy).  It almost looks like the actual endpapers from an old and much loved book, with it's various stains and smudges from countless fingers as the book is read and loved and passed down.  At least that's what it looks like to me!
