Christmas is over, the presents are all gifted, the guests are gone and I'm left with the clean up. The holiday traditions of taking down the tree, putting away the stockings and storing all the decorations once more. I think I'll get it done - - - - tomorrow! Here are the fingerless mitts I made for Horsey Girl for Christmas. Her new favorite color is turqouise so she was quite pleased with them. Notice the fancy manicure purchased with a gift certificate she got for Christmas. These were a really quick knit - cast on 30 stitches, then I did a rib of 3 rows stockinette and 2 rows of garter stitch. Then you sew them up - leave a space for the thumb and viola! Many thanks to my wonderful SP8 pal Brooke for the idea. I hope all of you had wonderful holidays and are surviving the holiday hangovers!
