My newest project (which I actually cast on last Saturday) is Annie Modesitt's Kensington Mitts from the 2011 Jane Austen Knits. I'll admit, when I saw the pattern, it immediately made me think of the Regency dress I've been meaning to make, because I'm planning on doing a short-sleeved dress, and since these are elbow length, I figure they're season extending.
I'm using Malabrigo sock yarn in the Cordovan colorway. The pattern's pretty straight forward - though the stretchy stitch she uses for the elbow took me a little while to wrap my head around. (I blame the mush my brain has been lately because of work...)
