I told you I have been knitting, but I can see as how you might doubt me due to lack of actual knitted items appearing here. So I give you actual knitting content!
These are the princess mitts that were released as a free pattern from The Knitters Book of Yarn. I made them for a friend of mine who requested fingerless mitts to wear when she worked at the farmers market in the winter. The yarn she picked out is Patons Soy Wool Stripes. I needed two balls of yarn, and as you can tell, the balls did not start or stop in the same place, so the stripes are slightly off. But she loves them anyway.
Hopefully I get some more knitting time this weekend and I can give you more knitting content soon!
