New Knitting

I have started Fetching fingerless gloves, the lighting and yarn variegation makes it hard to see the lovely cables that will be around the wrist. I'm knitting them on 2 circular needles, I found the second set of size 6 circulars (with a 36" cord) in the depths of my stash, purchased at least 25 years ago. The length and curl in the cord adds a bit of a challenge.
Completed 2 more scarves, the solid blue one is crocheted. The other is random blocks of color knit with the garter stitch, I must admit I have a lot more respect for the garter stitch now, I'm really pleased with this simple scarf.

And I finally broke down and bought The Opinionated Knitter so I have the pattern for the Baby Surprise Jacket, now to get the gumption to start it.
