Thank you all for the comments on the mittens and the clapotis!
It's so encouraging to read your nice words, and even if I don't answer be assured I cordially appreciate every comment.
For those that are paying close attention to my progress bar, the Himalaya socks are back in action.
I decided that the yarn I planed to use for the gloves was not glov-y enough. So I bought one skein of the same yarn I used for the baby socks. On the picture you see, that I only have to turn the short row toe. The 'scraps' then will be enough for a pair of short, finger(tip)less gloves, I hope.
Socktober was great!Thank you, Lolly! I haven't been very productive, but it was - once again - nice to knit socks in company. Sadly, I didn't have the time to visit as many other blogs as I would have liked to, and even more sad (shame on me!) I haven't left as many comments as I ought to have done. But I was watching you! ;-)
Now that Socktober is over, I'm thinking about something new to focus on.. ný, neu, nouveau.. Newvember? 'New' meaning not only new socks (Ha!) but new projects or even new techniques. I actually started already but do not really have the time to show you now. Has to do with the mysterious bag from some posts ago. More soon.
