Sunday, even though it was sunny. Just the kind of day to stay in and knit. DH and I don’t do much to decorate for Christmas in our house so I didn’t have to spend time doing that. We do put up lights in the front window and I have two things that I put out every year, a small pine cone tree and a Father Christmas.
Here’s the picture of the almost finished fingerless gloves (and tree and Father Christmas) I made this weekend. Just have to finish the thumbs (the part I don’t like doing) and add buttons to the cuff. I think I’ll give them to my sister in SoCal. She walks her dog every day and she has mentioned that at night it gets pretty cold out there.
The pattern for the mitts is Barista Mitts. I used Berocco Vintage DK. The errata on the left hand mitt was very confusing and halted my progress for a bit. I finally just guessed at what it said and it turned out fine. The pattern includes three cable patterns so you can make different mitts. The Vintage DK is great to work with. I scored 4 balls at a sale this summer for only $4.00 for all 4! So far I have made two scarves and these mitts and still have enough for another pair of gloves and a hat.
Hoping you all have a great week.
