There's been a flurry of activity, but not too much on the finishing of the objects, it seems. I can show you one of the two Christmas presents I knitted this month:
I made a pair of Fetching mitts for the mail carrier. I used leftover Cascade 220 from a shrug and another pair of Fetching mitts that I made for myself a few years ago. This time, I didn't do a cable at the top of the mitts, because I just wasn't feeling it. I also did a regular cast on and instead of the bind off specified, I just did two rounds of reverse stockinette and then I bound off. Otherwise, I followed the pattern.
I have to snag a picture of the other gift to show y'all.
