I finally finished one of my projects

My second pair of fiddlehead mittens are done! This pair was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my niece in college. I should have known i wouldn't be able to get them done in time, considering being prego with the 5th, working full time and all the other Christmas gift buying/preparation i had to do.

Anyway, I mailed them out to her today and of course, apologized, but I think she will understand. Hopefully there will be a few more cold days left this year that she can try them out.

Thanks for looking!

For my next project, I am going to make Cecilia this hat and mittens set to keep her warm for the end of the winter season. This project should go much faster!

What a success! They're so handsome. I know she'll love them. You need to crochet a chain for them. I'd HATE to lose one!!!! I love greens.

My niece got them in the mail a few days ago and said she loves them! And fortunately they are getting pounded with snow all this week so she says she has already worn them. It feels awfully good when something you make is well received. Especially by that most unpredictable of ages where its so hard to tell what they like and don't like!
