Yarn Along 16

I’m knitting some Paddle fingerless mitts as a Christmas present for my granddad. I’m using some stash yarn I’ve had for a long time: Swish DK in Persimmon Heather and Grain Heather.  I knit the whole thing on size 3 DPNs since switching to the recommended size 5 made a) a very loose fabric and b) a giant mitt, even for a man. I’m much happier with the results on the smaller needles.

I started reading Ready Player One last night on Gavin’s recommendation. He recently finished the audiobook, but I wasn’t convinced until I saw Modern Mrs. Darcy’s post on books she had to be talked into reading, which included Ready Player One. So I put it on hold at the library and here we are. So far I am really enjoying it!
