Loving my extremities

    I've gotten much more time this week to work on my knitting and have spent a little time on all of my projects. I finished the first sock of my Pomatomus sock. I'm simply in love with this pattern, I'll be casting the second one soon. I just need to find the time where I can sit still through most of the first couple of rows.

I think the next time I make this particular pattern I will make the cuff much longer. The short cuffs are cute, but my feet are always so cold!

IMAG0125I've also started on my christmas gifts! Tuesday, I casted on a pair of fingerless gloves for a friend. I'm using Swish DK yarn from Knitpicks in the color whirlpool. I'm starting with a basic tube on size 5 circular needles and will later make a single thumb hole when I decide that they are long enough. This allows them to fit on either hand. (No left or right confusions with the pattern!) She has much longer arms than I do, so I'll be making these to fit slightly past my own elbow.
