Bam! and Neon Socks.

I am on my mission to finish started projects.  Yesterday I finished this:

These are the “Fightin’ Words” fingerless gloves.  I never blogged about starting them, but I specifically remember starting them when we went on a trip to Crested Butte back when we lived in Colorado.  I began them in mid-August 2012.  Now nearly four years later, the first mitt is complete.

I did immediately cast on the second mitt though, and I am determined to finish it before I do anything else.

I bought a kit to make these mitts from Knit Picks.  I am pretty sure that the yarn I am using is Knit Picks Stroll Fingering weight.  It’s a nice soft superwash wool and nylon blend.  I like it lots.

Davey took one look at the finished mitt and decided he wants them.  The second mitt will say “Pow”!

I also finished my NEON socks.  I used Plymouth Neon Now which I bought at my awesome local yarn store.

These were fun to knit.  I love self-striping yarn, and I always enjoy this simple sock pattern from Susan B. Anderson.

Now back to the POW mitt!
