Knitting UFOs and one finished project!

The Paris-Roubaix mitts pattern is from Knitspot, and are being knit from extremely soft Ambrosia yarn from Knit Picks, which is a baby Alpaca and Cashmere mix from my stash. My hands have been so cold lately, that I'm anxious to finish them. (I'll have to take a better picture when they are done.)

This cowl is a gift I'm getting ready to ship. It's a bit late, but better late than never :-) The pattern was free online, but of course I can't find it right now - sorry.

One of my road trip projects is a pair of Serpentine Mitts by Miriam L. Felton that I'm working on . It is a free pattern on Ravelry, but you might need to be a member to download it(membership is free). The second one is in progress, but it may take a while for me to finish as I can only work on the easier parts on the road, and the rest at home between other projects. The yarn is Louet Gems sock yarn (and of course these would also be nice to keep my hands warm).

The Baby Surprise Jacket has made some progress, and is now waiting for me to weave in all the tails from changing colors. (I do know how to weave them in as I go, but hadn't decided which would be the right side until I finished the knitting, as I liked both sides.) I'm thinking it should have a hood, instead of collar, and am planning to try to use the hood from EZ's Tomten jacket pattern. Good thing the baby isn't due for a while, so I'll have time to get it finished.

Looks like you've been knitting up a storm, Lynn. I like the way your baby jacket is turning out! Neat mitts, too. Isn't it fun to make them?
