I'm happy to report two finished objects that I am rather pleased with.
I finally finished the Willow and Oz knee socks I started in October.
Randomly striped knee socks are definitely nifty, but these were a slog. I think it was the knitting with two balls of yarn. Not portable and a bit fiddly.
Emma loves them and that makes me happy. The colours are fantastic: Indigodragonfly merino sock in My world is all askew and Hootenanny: Well it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny.
And yesterday I finished something nice for me:
Sweetums fingerless mitts in beautiful Indigodragonfly merino silk. This is not a colour I would pick for myself. That the nice thing about clubs. They push you outside of your normal boundaries. Now that they're done I love them. The colour is so pretty (top photo is more accurate; it's hard to photograph your own hands).
These were the ones I stumbled on a few weeks back. Once I got over that it was smooth sailing and for a little bit I felt like I had my knitting groove back.
They're very warm and cozy. And sadly, still needed. Actually, it was too cold to wear them today.
I think I'm going to stick with some small things, it feels good to finish some pieces that I'm happy with.
