Just One More Round Wristwarmers by Cat Bordhi. Pattern on Ravelry from Knitty.com.
Yarn is Happy Feet DK stranded with Knit Picks Shadow (lace weight).
Woodland Mitten(s) from a Knit Picks kit of 6 pair, all in Palette Yarn. This is the November mitten in the bright colorway. Second mitten is on the needles, and a matching hat is in the plan also. By Christmas? We'll see.
Both are gifts for daughters-in-law.

I wanted something pretty for the cooler weather. The wristers don't match the beret, although they were intended to complement the hat. I hope next year to add another something in the same colourways. I absolutely love this yarn...it is perfect for colourwork, and I am gradually acquiring a nice little stash for future projects!
Beret pattern: Amaryllis (by Mary Ann Stephens) Needles: 3.25mm

2 Noah's Ark baby blankets...the only difference between the 2 is the color of the boat and the trim on the house. Would have been done earlier but I had misplaced the pattern so I couldn't finish the giraffe. This would be my 4th & 5th time completing this pattern.
Hopefully, later this month I will finally my done with my tablecloth...in the meantime, I'm looking forward to casting on Tama's Socks for Christmas.
