It’s been a productive week for me! First up are these pretty & simple fingerless gloves. I knit these way back when I first started knitting, but now that I’m older and wiser I made a couple mods to the pattern. (ex. using smaller needles for the ribbing).

And finally, another pair of fliptop mittens knit for a commission. 🙂

I’m spending my holiday working on Christmas gifts. (I always wait until the last minute…)

First, I’ve been knitting these gossamer infinity scarves like crazy. I’ll have a whole stock of them by the end of the year.

Another awesome gift: I’ve been making these “heartwarmers” that you can put in the microwave for a few seconds & put in your coat pockets to keep your hands warm.

Next up, a panda hat that I’ve knit a million times and written up a pattern for. But this one was for a 5-month-old. I got a picture of her in it later & it was beyond adorable.

Finally, a pair of flip-top mittens that were commissioned. They were loosely based off ofPurl Soho’s pattern, but I modified it because 1. they were huge! and 2. I hate reverse stockinette.
