Two Projects

Two completed projects!

The first is a pair of Snicket Socks, though I did the heel and toe differently than the pattern calls for because I'm not fond of short rows. They have an interesting sort of chicken-wire look to me, though it's certainly very soft pretty chicken wire.

The second is Endpaper Mitts for shumashi, in her traditional Not-Matching style, though they actually don't match even more than they're supposed to, which I'm rather embarrassed about. So maybe they're not completed after all. Also, I find it interesting to look at the patterns - in both of them, the dark brown looks to me like the "pattern", and the light rose-brown is the "background". Does it look like that to other people?
