done, doing and to do

clicking along

As you can see from the photo, the length of leg knitted has doubled since yesterday, which can only mean one thing: the red sweater is done! Yippee! See you at the end of the week for a finished object Friday.

While working away at this first Denmark sock I've been thinking about how lovely this alpaca yarn is. It'd be perfect for a pair of fingerless mitts! Wait a minute ... didn't my friend Nancy mention that she'd like some fingerless mitts for Christmas? Yes, she did. And now that I think about it I'm pretty there's enough alpaca in various natural shades for mitts. Here's the pattern I'm looking at: Susie's Reading Mitts. Cute, huh? Think I'll give them a whirl.

Today's the first day of my vacation and although there's a road trip planned, I'm pretty sure there'll be lots of time to knit this evening. Happy Monday!

I love Susie's reading mitts - I've wanted to make myself a pair for a while!

Can't wait to see the red sweater!
