A finish or two

I finished a pair of fingerless mitts.  These are to replace a pair of fingerless mitts that had been destroyed by a visiting dog. I started with this pattern and made them a little longer. I also added length and a cuff to the thumb. The yarn is Malabrigo. I’ve made a few of these mitts and finally got to make a pair for me! The yarn was dreamy and so soft.  It was my first time working with Malabrigo, and my first time working with a single. That was a little odd, I kept wanting to put more twist in the strand. The softness more than made up for any strangeness. I received more Malabrigo as a gift and I can’t wait to make something else.  I’m thinking a hat.

The next finish is a pair of socks for my mother. I brought them along on Park City trip as car knitting. I only had the cuffs left to do. When I got them out I was surprised to find that I had finished one sock already and had only the cuff of the other left to do. I hope to finish these today and get them in the mail.

I hoped to get them into the mail before this but things got so busy.  I’m already late for her birthday so I may as well wait and add them into the Christmas box.  Which will also probably be late cuz that’s how I roll.  It’s a plain, toe-up sock pattern made with this yarn in the Thyme colorway.
