Ho Ho Ho

The Little A says Happy Holidays to all. Actually, I think she's saying "I can't nap with this stupid hat and collar -- so take it off -- NOW."

I finally finished my fingerless gloves. Good thing since they're a Christmas gift. I had to redo the "fingers" three times. First time I made the actual mini-fingers, but they were too bunchy. So I did a k1/p1 rib, but that just looked awful. I couldn't do a k2/p2 ribbing to match the cuff (54 stitches), so I did a k4/p2. Came out very well, if I do say so myself. I think there's enough leftover yarn to make a pair for me. I do want to practice some new cast on/bind off techniques.
