What I am working on these days.
My mittens. One done to the thumb, the other nearly so.
I have never cared for that method of finishing a mitten where it comes to a point, but I was at a loss for a better one. I have since discovered a decrease method I like better; perhaps I'll frog that last 1.5" and redo it.
Child's washable wool hat and mitten set, due a week from today for a community project.
The mitten is the Target Mitten pattern from Norah Gaughan's Knitting Nature. I hope it does not require a child with a hand mounted at 90˚ to her hand to fit. First mitten done, second still requires a thumb. Hat, ribbing done; it will be the Sunflower Tam from that same book. I have a plan to make it even more amazing than the original. Hat and mittens knit from more leftovers, mostly from the same Berrocco Vintage that was left over from the baby sweater. Knit from stash, yay!

This is from Thanksgiving Day, when Alex and Matthew were making cornbread to go with the enchiladas. Matthew posed his elbow thusly so I could get an action shot of him breaking an egg.
