I finished the fingerless, thumbed gloves, but only after a trip to Watkinsville for more yarn. The pattern was great—easy and clear, even for a dpn beginner—but I ended up with three inches of yarn with which to knit the final thumb. And I'd been very stingy with the tails, too, leaving no more than a couple inches for each. Anyway, now I have some extra pretty pink yarn to do something with. The thumbs, by the way, were much easier than I thought they'd be. I'm ready to make another pair, as backup for when the dogs chew up these.

Here they are in the matching pink bedroom. You can see where
one of the cables is twisting the wrong way. Oh well.

And here they are on, with matching pink bug. She'd just woken up,
which is why her eyes are all movie-star puffy.

Gorgeous! (gloves) And adorable. (Bug)

That's annoying about the yarn. But maybe something fun can be made with the leftover. I have some DB Cashmerino Aran leftover--one foresty green skein, one black--maybe they can all go together to make something soft and colorful.

Haven't had a chance to look yet, but I have some books here with baby patterns--will keep an eye out for baby pixie bonnets.
