Wittling down the to-dos

....oh my bad bad spelling. extra points to those who picked up on my earlier mistake!

New blog header? check!

Mom's birthday gift knit and received? check!

Looking ahead to long, chilly nights huddled under the afghan, mom requested a pair of fingerless mitts, as any good crafter would ~ so she can keep on sewing, knitting, typing well into those winter evenings::

Pattern:220 Fingerless mitts {ravelry link}

Yarn: bits from my stash

Comments: Just a few great things to say about this pattern, it's very easy, fun for making up your own striping pattern and throwing in a random color or two, and finally, they're SUPER STRETCHY! Which means one pair can be shared by many different sized hands, and you can make them from afar without worrying about them fitting the recipient!

And finally, getting outside to enjoy the changing foliage? check and check

Sweet. I think I'll put down the endless comfort shawl and cast on for these quickies!
