yarn along

Joining in with the yarn along this week.

Working really hard on the mittens now, I have had to give myself a schedule and really make myself stick to it. If I do I should hopefully finish them over the weekend.

Working on a pair of socks for my nephew, he learnt to knit over the holidays and asked for a pair of green socks, a request like this cannot be refused.

Also, I am trying to design a pair of mittens for Roghan, (3 months old), obviously he doesn't really need to be able to use his hands too much so I was thinking just a long tube of ribbing which goes to his elbows and gathers over his fingers. Any ideas?
