Almost Finished

My daughter had several friends request fingerless mitts for Christmas. She decided that would be the easiest was to go. She came home and asked if I had yarn in my stash in light blue, black, teal and gray ..... that I didn't need ... what ???? I don't have yarn I don't need. What was she thinking. Anyway I did end up searching through the stash to help her out. And then I ended up knitting the majority of them. Funny how that happens. I feel a little bit sorry for the one getting the baby blue ones as it is Red Heart baby yarn. The teal pair is Classic Elite Posh cashmere and silk and the other is a very nice handspun merino I got in an exchange. It has been wonderful to knit with .
She did knit one pair almost on her own. I have to do the join so she doesn't end up with a moebius, and I pick up and start the thumb for her. And I have to weave in all the ends. Otherwise this pair is all hers. I told her I was not knitting a shirtless sleeve. I hate knitting sleeves and this is definitely too close to that.
I have two other pair almost finished and will post them later.
Have a great Christmas everyone.

Gorgeous! Lucky you, knitting with Posh--I made a scarf of it and I loved just touching it. What a good mom you are!
