Some Say 'Newgrange', Some Say "Triskelion"

I finished the second thumb of the Triskelion mittens last night.
They were a very easy knit. The instructions and chart were very easily interpreted and they knit up quite quickly.

The inside even looks very nice. There are actually knitters that are obsessed with what the stranding looks like. For the most part I didn't anchor strands up to about 6 stitches long as I didn't want the green to show through the black but I did a modified anchoring technique on some of the long strands.
When knitting with two colours, I keep one yarn in my left hand and the other in the right. If you switch hands a lot or don't pay attention to which yarn is dominant, the look will be uneven.
