I started these fingerless mitts as a test run for Rowan Cashsoft 4-ply. There is a much larger project I'm planning for this yarn from the Rowan Classic Accessories, Book 20, so I'm happy there is a good way to try out the yarn and play with gauge a bit.
The only issue I've had is with seaming. I loathe seaming in every way, but because of the decreases, these are fussier than normal. Once I completed the first of the mitts, I decided to start over and knit in the round. So far, so good!
Holiday preprations are going smoothly over here. Cards out, lights up, menus being planned, cookies to bake, parcels to send. The house is almost completely settled. We've be extra-motivated since putting up the tree and all. Sean and I are putting the finishing touches on our personal workspaces and rooms, but aside from that...we're done!
Happy December to everyone!
