I'm still knitting, I promise!

I have been trudging along.

I made a cute little snail
The pattern can be found here, it was sort of fun, even if a little fidgety.

I am also in the process of having a pattern for fingerless mitts tested. I will post pictures once it is done being tested. I can't decide if it will be a free Rav download or not. But it will be available on Ravelry.

I am also still working on stockings, I want to make Madeline a hat before it gets too cold. and finish up some of my one mitt projects. I will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws house, I will probably have plenty of time that day....

over committed, or overly ambitious?

I have offered to be a test knitter on a couple fingerless mitt patterns. One for Mschris, with Diminutive Mitts, She is donating proceeds from the sale of this pattern to March of Dimes, dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. I wasn't the best test knitter, I still haven't finished my second mitt, and I had to redo the first on, because I had knit it too loose

but here is my first one.

I also test knit for Snapper's Cafe au lait mitts I struggled a bit with those as well, because I used black yarn, which is notoriously difficult to work with. However, I finished them, and am working on a second pair, for a friend of mine as part of a knit a long for one of my ravelry groups.

Here's the first one.
Here is the second pair in progress

I have also bought some yarn to make Madeline a hat and Hal a pair of socks for Hal

I have also signed up to be part of several swaps that take place on or before Plus I keep having people contact me to make stockings.... and more stockings. I am trying to keep up with out going insane, but maybe I have already reached that destination?
