For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

off the needles: herringbone mitts

Shock horror, I've actually finished something. Bet you're glad you were sitting down for that bombshell. Remember when I got all excited about this stitch? Well, I've finally finished a pair of fingerless mitts for Mr P. As usual, all the details are on Ravelry here
It's a gorgeous free pattern by Kat Goldin. 

The beauty of herringbone stitch is that it looks complex and intricately woven, but it's really just a fairly simple two row repeat. I checked out Youtube and found that there's a few different ways you can work this stitch, but this is the method I used - so easy. I'm pretty much head-over-heels for this stitch, and now have a few herringbone Christmas knitting ideas brewing in my mind tank. 

It certainly feels good to finish a project that I'd neglected for so long. Phew! My crafty goals for the rest of the month are to crack on with my big pink crochet blanket and to tackle another amigurumi project. What are you working on/totally neglecting at the moment?
