Works in Progress

I have decided I am tired of looking at all of my WIPs and UFOs, and I am trying to use my knitting time
this year to finish some of those long languishing projects.
So far I haven't done anything too ancient, but projects that were closer to the surface.
They are small, but I am still quite happy to nearly finish them
and not add to the list of items that need finishing.

Right now I am working on a pair of Latvian wristers from a class by Beth Brown Reinsel:
Yarn: Classic Elite Fresco
 This weekend I was able to learn how to knit and then complete a pair
- yes! a pair of these Lithuanian wristers in a class with Donna Drachunas.
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy
After I finish the wristers, I have a Norwegian sweater calling my name...

Fingerless Mitts for K-san

K-san, who doesn't ask for much, but is so very generous asked me about fingerless mitts. 
I offered to make some for her. She wanted purple to match her coat and luckily I had some lovely
Socks That Rock midweight mill ends that fit the bill.
I found this great free pattern on Ravelry.

Finished! Color not accurate here, it's a bit washed out.
She will be able to type with them on when she gets cold  in her office.
In progress, color is best in this photo.
