Two FO's

I have a couple of FO's (finished objects) to share! First, let me present my new mittens:













And here are my new socks:















I have been doing a lot of writing lately, and not too much knitting. I have gotten the green light from my advisor to set a proposal defense date (pending one last revision) so I will be pretty focused on school for the next few weeks. It feels great to be making some progress on my dissertation! I know that I will have to set the knitting aside for a bit - or rather not spend quite so many evenings knitting as I would like - to jump this next hurdle, but I'm on my way. Yeah!

Details for both projects are on ravelry. The mittens are Bird in Hand by Kate Gilbert, and the socks are Spring Forward by Linda Welch.
