Christmas in the air and peekaboo

Finished peekaboo mittens

 

It’s finally December and I’m heartily counting down every day for my very short holiday. In the meantime, I have a FO for once!

 Completed my Peekaboo mittens and rather happy that I managed to do it in time for the finger numbing chilliness that managed to sweep its way into the city. It’s a really easy pattern and simple enough to modify. I ended up ripping it back twice to enlarge the slits and make them a little more centered.

 Next time I knit this, I’ll probably incorporate a pattern into the design, increase the length of the ribbing and decrease the number of stitches for the slits by 2.

 It feels a little odd having a quiet Christmas and expecting to see snow rather than sun for once in my life. My housemate has thrown himself into the spirit of Chritmas and we have been happily nibbling on his mince pies for the past few days.
