FO Friday: Mittens & Yoga Socks

Happy FO Friday! I finished my finito mittens for Malabrigo March and have been wearing them all week! They are so soft and warm, and it was surprisingly easy to convert the Waiting for Spring fingerless mitt pattern to mittens (and I still only used one skein of Finito!).
I also made some yoga socks over the weekend - these have been in my queue for quite some time, and I can't believe I waited so long to make them. The pattern is from one of my favorite books, Knitted Socks East and West by the late Judy Sumner. I used the Obi pattern with just a few minor modifications to whip these up! They were a great way to destash some mystery yarn, too; I'm 98% certain this was a skein of alpaca yarn from Blue Sky, but of course the label is long gone. I split the skein by weight and used the whole thing up, save a few yards. I'm excited to test them out; it's been way too long since I've dusted off the yoga mat, in part because our living room is a bit drafty in the wintertime. I'm hoping that this will inspire me to be more active!
Unfortunately, I didn't quite finish assembling my moose for today's post, but I'll definitely be finishing it up over this weekend so that I can share it next Friday.

Have a crafty weekend!
