Back of DH's first Xylitol mitten.

DH's first Xylitol mitten just needs a thumb.

Hoping to get this pair done for my last FO of 2013!

Latvian braid cast on my way on Xylitol mitts for DH.

I didn't understand the pattern directions (too tired from work, I guess) so I did my own version. Now the designer has posted expanded directions which I'll use on the next pair -my class sample.

STR in Wonderful Goodness, a color he picked out at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival this past September. His usual pattern - k2 p2.

Oldest niece's Multnomah shawlette blocking, will mail it next week.

Finally got the shawlette done, washed and pinned it out last night. I think by the end of the day it will be dry. This is the third time I've knit this pattern - it's a great go-to pattern for a quick gift. Definitely a pattern to have in one's library.

Now to get back to DH's socks so he can have a wrapped present under the tree Tuesday night, lol. I asked him for a box of dark chocolates under the tree, as I'm driving my presents for the next year, hehehe.
