Afghans 4 Afghans Mittens.

I haven't gotten much done with the UFO's. I have had so many orders come in the last 2 weeks I haven't been able to do anything but knit them up & ship. I have been working on UFO's  when I have the chance though. 

I did get a swatch done for my tuck stitch mittens that I am making for the A4A program. They have to go out sometime this month so I had better get busy. I am only doing 4-5 pair of the larger sizes. I like making the larger sizes. It seems they get lots of the smaller sizes & not so many of the large. 

Also, I have been looking for intarsia pattern books & found a good one on Ebay. It is for hand knitters but has lots of simple graphs in it. They can be applied to any sweater & they are printed in small, 19sts x 26 rows, & larger sizes, 40sts x 52 rows. The graphs are small so I am scanning them & printing them larger so they are a little easier to follow. & I am still keeping my eye out for small easy patterns for children.
