FO - tiny socks and fingerless mitts
The socks are for the Afghans for Afghans newborn campaign. It's a great way to use up little bits of yarn for a good cause.

The fingerless mitts are for a Christmas gift for one of my DDs.

I managed to make both the socks and mitts match by measuring the first color I cast on with.

Both the socks and the mitts look *great*! I love the colors on the mitts, and the socks are so bright and cheery. They are sure to be a hit!

I might see if my DMom wants to do a baby sock-knit-along with me to send some socks to the charity you mentioned. Do they have to be any particular type of yarn, do you know?
