yarn along

Joining in again with Ginny for the yarn along.
No reading really for me this week but plenty of knitting. Most excitingly I finally finished those mittens!

Loads of time and effort in those, admittedly I did have a baby in between the start and finish of these but still I seem to have been working on them forever.

Also made this really really cute baby hood for Roghan from this pattern. I used Debbie Bliss cashmerino yarn, it is gorgeously soft.

Just cast on for some fingerless gloves for me too. Really? For me? It has been a very long time since I got to wear anything I knitted, so although it feels a bit naughty I'm just going to do it... quickly though so maybe no-one will notice!
