A knitting time of year

I have some easy knitting on the go...and getting great pleasure from it, especially as I haven't done any for ages.  These fingerless mittens are really simple and suit my way of working.

Now I've worked out how many stitches and rows I need, the only pattern is in my head!  I'm using Aran yarn, with some wool content and adding stripes and embroidered bobbles from yarn leftover from other projects.  They're becoming addictive though...just can't stop making them.  They're brill to wear, very warm, and I can shop without taking them off.

If anyone would like the details I will do a post of the pattern...as best I can!
