I still knit!!

Ok, I don't have much time to knit, but I was able to finish the fair isle mittens for my mother in law, and I have also started another project, a pair of thick socks for my aunt. Technically these are all Christmas gifts, but I don't think people will mind if they are a little bit late. I used the pattern for Eunny's Endpaper Mitts and modified them slightly to be mittens. I used Louet Gems Pearl fingering weight yarn. I also started a new project, some thick socks for my aunt, made with Mission Falls Wool on size 5 dpns. I'm using a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. And in case you guys were dying for more Robby pictures, here is a good one of his eyes open!

Love the mittens - I am in complete amazement that you are able to get any knitting done with a brand new baby!

Ok, will do. I guess you probably won't be partaking of the wine for ahwile though huh!

Well, no offense to Eunny, but cute baby pics trump knitting pics no matter how sensational the knitting is.

He is one darling baby.

Oh, he's so adorable! It's really hard to get good pictures of their eyes, but that's a great one!

I also find that I manage to sneak in a bit of knitting time, but I'm not too fond about knitting with DPNs when the little one is near. But small projects are great!

That's great that you make time to knit. Robby is so cute! He definitely has your eyes. The rest of his facial features look like Rob. :-)

I love your color choices for Endpaper Mitts. I'm so close to using this pattern as my first dabble into fair isle!
