Christmas Knitting

Finally! Something finished and something I can show you! I finished these two days ago - you can get a lot of knitting done in a dentist's office waiting room. I wanted to make something special for our grief counselor and thought fingerless mitts would be nice. R found this free pattern on Ravelry. They are called "Baby Fan Mitts." I used two skeins of Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino. I probably could have done it with one, but I like to knit two at a time and I had two skeins, so that's what I did! R has already dropped some hints that she would like a pair and I wouldn't mind a pair myself, so I guess I better get busy.
The color is actually a solid navy blue. It's just not coming across that way in the pictures.
Another bonus - I found this yarn in my stash just waiting to be knit into something special for someone special!
As for L, he is doing great! We are finally feeding the boy solids and he is happy, happy, happy! However, the soft foods around here didn't go to waste. RL ended up in the dentist's chair yesterday and now he is on soft foods! It happens.
