These use up the left overs from my Whovian Argyles socks and DH loves the two colors together. I have enough other left overs to make him another pair for Christmas.

Crocheting second side of Sirkler sleeve steek.

I use a size C crochet hook with fingering weight yarns for crocheted steeks.

First sleeve steeks crocheted on Sirkler sleeves.

Both sides crocheted, will be cut open after other side is done, then sleeve seams will be sewn.

Nearing the top decreases and loving how the sock yarns are working in this pattern.

Facings on Sirkler sleeves

I used one strand on each sleeve so the facings have the same number of rows.

Thumb on left Joie du Printemps mitten

I'm picking up in the outside leg of the stitch below the round I'm working on and really like how it's looking in the STR LW yarns. It's giving a nice crisp line to the edge of the thumb gusset.

La Joie du Printemps mitten first cuff done.

It's a good thing I decided to go down to size zero dpns for these mittens - ones would have been too big. My gauge at this point is about nine stitches to the inch, while the pattern calls for ten to the inch with fingering weight yarn. My hands are large, so this will work out well. I just need to make sure my gauge doesn't relax. After all the sweaters I've been working on the last nine months, it's nice to work on something quick for a change.
