Mum's broadstreet mittens/fingerless gloves are finished. She's tried them on and they fit a treat. Now she just has to wait for the large, jolly bloke in the red suit to visit before she can have them!
I've decided to frog the socks I started for her because the yarn (from her stash) is really harsh and was hurting my fingers while I was knitting with it. I think it will be too harsh for feet so it had to go. I am going to try washing it to see if it softens up at all so she may yet get her socks! I've been a bit sneaky because I told her that she won't be getting socks for Christmas but I remembered last night that I have a ball of Opal Rodeo Cotton so I've started her a pair in that. I noticed this morning that she is wearing the other pair I made her and I said 'nice socks, shame you aren't getting a pair for Christmas' and she hit me! She'll take it all back on Sunday when she opens her presents.
I guess that means I'd better get knitting then!
