A few progress pictures.
End paper mitts:
These are coming along really nicely. I'm definitely getting a good feel for the yarn, though I don't think I'm getting the gauge I will need for my sweater. I seem to be knitting a bit more loosely than required, but we'll see what gauge is like after these have been washed and blocked.
Endless toe-up ribbed sock:
One down, one to go. I think I may rip out my cast off and put a bit of 1x1 ribbing at the top of this sock, but I'll wait until it has a mate.
