My first...

...completed crafting of 2016.

A pair of fingerless mittens and a lace snood...
 ...the yarn is Stylecraft "Cabaret" in Ocean...
 ...a lovely soft yarn with a hint of sparkle...
 ...I was really pleased with the way the pieces knitted up so quickly.

I'm a lazy knitter. I can calculate stitches and work out my own patterns but if there is a pattern available to save me the trouble, I'm happy to use it as a basis for my knitting. In this case, I've knitted these mittens a couple of times now but this was the first time I had tried the snood. Having seen how easy the stitch pattern worked up on the snood, I decided to have a play.

Using a white sparkly yarn...
 ...I knitted another pair of mittens but added a band of the lace stitch...
...it seems to have worked rather well so I just need to complete the matching snood.

If I don't get fed-up with knitting these, there could be a few produced and put aside ready for next Christmas' gifts..................................................................
