One FO & one (almost) FO
Here are a couple of FOs. One is neckerchief that I made with some alpaca/nylon yarn that I had left over from a lapghan that I made.

The second project are stranded mittens. I am having a problem with the thumbs. There are gaping holes on either side of both thumbs. The openings for the thumbs were held with scrap yarn knitted in. Does anyone happen to know what I am doing wrong? I stitched the holes closed, and I think it's passable now. There is nothing in the instructions about picking up additional stitches on the sides.

Those are beautiful. Mittens often have holes at the edges of the thumb join, it's not you. Just leave enough of tail yarn to neatly duplicate stitch the hole shut, no one will see it. I've done stranded mittens with the striped thumbs and had to do this. I have those squirrel mittens on my Ravelry to do list.
