I desperately wanted to finish a pair of fingerless gloves that I started Feb 28. Sadly I only finished the first one.

I’m using knitpicks comfy fingering… and I’m in love!!!! Seriously wish I had more of this cotton/acrylic base.

This is the endpaper mitts pattern, and it is my fourth time knitting it. Which is probably a record for me. 🙂 I’m getting my colourwork mojo back! yay!

Remember my crochet blanket? Here it is in its natural habitat:
