My Selbu mittens have been going well. I ended up designing my own chart and tweaking the pattern a bit. I found the perfect buttery soft baby alpaca to knit them with. They are coming along slowly, since I'm working on a few projects at once. I've set aside these mittens for now, to focus on some Christmas presents I have to finish knitting first. I finished my hat recently - after finishing it once and ripping it all out and doing it over again with smaller needles because it was too big. I'm glad I did that, though, because the second time it turned out perfect. I'll have to take a picture of myself in it soon to post here.
