The mitts are done! They are cute, I love them!

Pattern: Endpaper Mitts, by Eunny Jang.
Yarn: The pink is the merino sock yarn by Fearless Fibers. The grey... I'm not sure! It was the yarn from my Fair Isle socks, that I ended up frogging. I think it's Patons Kroy but I'm not 100% sure.
Needles: 2.75 mm and 3 mm DPNs
Notes: I love them and they were very easy and quick to knit. BUT if I were to make them again (and I just might), I wouldn't do the faux seam. I hate that grey line in the middle. Oh well.

And I need to say again that I LOVE Fearless Fibers. The yarn is soft, it has great colours and the skein is HUGE! Seriously. With one skein, I made a pair of Roza's socks, then I used the leftovers for the mitts, and I still have this much left:

It's still a pretty big ball in my hand. (And now I imagine all the Google hits I'll receive from people looking for big balls in my hand HAHA. Fooled you!)

Okay. Now the WIP. Since I'm done with the mitts, I need to finish those Christmas presents. I've worked on the socks for mom's boyfriend:

I want to finish them and my boyfriend's scarf ASAP so I can knit for me again without guilt. I see more fair isle in my future, yes I do!

I've been itching to buy a whole heap of Fearless Fibers, especially since she reduced her shipping costs to Canada! Great mitts, congrats.

The mitts look great! I have fair isle fears...talk to me about your floats, mine are always too tight!

Hey! I found your blog through JM (I post on the WTTC board) and was wondering how long you've been knitting? Do you have any tips for beginners?

Thanks!

Love your mitts. I must make them now. So jealous! Are they really an easy knit? Are you coming knitting Wed night? If so, bring them!
