UFO time...

For some reason, I have a bad case of "finishitis". Not sure where it came from, but I am running with it. :grin: We won't discuss how many UFO's (UnFinished Objects) I have.....let's just say that any case of finishitis can be suffered thru pretty easily. :grin:

I finished the kippah - it's currently blocking and will go out in the world next week. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to knit next when my eye fell upon a project abandoned in 2011. There's NOTHING wrong with the project, I just needed something mindless to knit so abandoned this and went with a new sock project. (It happens. This project is color-work, so 2 balls of yarn, AND it's charted - I can't juggle a chart in the car, which is why my default project is socks.)

I've done quite a bit since I picked it up yesterday - but here's what I've got so far:

black forest gloves

The pattern is the Black Forest Mitts, from Ravelry. I fell in love with the knot work - not sure why it's languished for 2 years, but I'm back in the groove and want to get them DONE. The yarn is.....I dunno; soft wool and silk, I think - I know I got the yarn at Yarn and Stitches in Dallas; next time I'm there I'll try to get them to help me ID it. It's a lovely, lovely yarn - very soft and shiny, but it's not suitable for everyday wear. It has almost no body at all - very slinky and limp and SOFT. These will be my "out with the husband" fingerless mitts; I have plans to do another pair for around the house and barn use. I've got some emerald green handspun superwash in fingering weight that will be perfect; I just need to scrounge up a contrast color and I'm good to go.

This pair, I'm almost finished with the thumb gusset - 2 more rounds - then it's 1" to the fingers. So, almost done. :happy dance: The 2nd one should go quickly; IIRC, I had only put in about 1 week's worth of knitting in this one before I abandoned it. It's not a complicated knit, it's just not one I can do while out and about. :lol:

Not much else to report - it's gotten cold here, and it's supposed to rain again. Lovely weather, if you like the cold. :lol:

Shabbat Shalom!
