Twilight Knits

As you may already know from previous posts I'm new the world of Twilight. I'm almost finished the second book (although I've seen all 3 movies). I'm also learning to crochet and knit, once again repeating myself I know. Sorry.
So I'm combining the both. There are plenty of Twilight inspired knitting patterns out there and there are a good few many I want to try once my skills pick up. Any way here are two pairs of "Alice Mitts" that I have recently knitted. I'm pretty pleased with them.

Inspired by all things vampy I decided to do a red eye the other day. I haven't really used my Circus Sleek palette as I wasn't overly keen on it but the pink and red were calling me. Everything else I kept super pale as you can see. I would certainly use these colours again. Red on the eyes always feels a little different as not many people use it. In certain lights it also looked a bit purple IMO.

Hope you are all doing well.

Oh and while on a vampire topic any True Blood fans out there, loving season 3!
