Finished Clue 2 tonight and can now set this aside until the next clue comes out. I'm really happy the way the gold I picked is working with the Three Irish Girls yarn. I think I'm going to enjoy wearing this shawl when it's finished.

These are my late Christmas 2013 gift to my BFF, Betsy. I had to finish a pair of mittens for a class sample because I needed the yellow yarn for them. Now I'm casting them on and looking forward to finally gifting them to her.

Finished them today, second pair of mittens finished in 2014. These are my class sample for my February Fair Isle mitten class I will also be teaching my students Outi's double long tail cast on and how to make their own mitten blockers.

Xylitol mitten for class sample with thumb cast off., a photo by BlueDragon2 on Flickr.
I went down to a size 1.5 needle, did just 20 rounds, and cast off very firmly in purl. The tip still seems a bit loose but I'll see how it works when worn. Now I'll pick stitches and do the flap, hopefully get it done tonight.

Just need to wash and block them and they are done! He's looking forward to wearing them fishing in a day or two. Love the colors I chose from my stash - now to choose colors for my class sample pair.
