Things have been very lethargic around here. We have been staying home, doing little jobs around the house. We had a family Boxing Day lunch with those close enough to be here. Other than that, we have been spending much of our time, not knowing what day it is, sitting by the fire, reading and listening to Christmas music seems to be our main activity.
I made a pair of fingerless mitts.
The pattern is called Point Edward Mitts, and you can turn the top cuff down over your fingers, so you have the advantage of fingerless mitts with finger warmers (and the thumb). The yarn is a discontinued baby DK yarn from Bernat, that was in my stash. I used a tubular cast on and cast off which I think made a nice finish.
I also made the first of a pair of mitts to match the hat on the last blog.
To go with these mitts, I made mitten clips, in hopes that fewer mittens will be lost, this year. As requested, they are Super Mario fabric.
I opened my knitting bag, yesterday, and found this.
It took a bit of work, and some coffee, but I ended up with this.
Ready for a future pair of baby socks.
Meanwhile, Emme and Mudd have joined our quiet times.
I hope your Christmas was peaceful as well. I'll be back later with my year end tally.
