RCYC MKAL clue 2 finished.

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.

Xylitol mitten for class sample with thumb cast off.

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.
