Okay.... I'm sorry if we're boring you with all the knitwork... But we were asked what Mom was knitting during Election night..

Um... Let's see... What IS this, Mom?

Um.. Okay... Your hands get cold when you're studying, but you can't wear gloves while typing and reading.. Uh.. okay.. If you say so...

I can see your finger, Mom!!!

She's been doing some more knitting, too.. Well.. It was mostly finished last weekend.

She's also knitted one more hat for Grandpa. He's an entemologist (working with insects) and Mom found this cute snail pattern.. or something similar.. and copied it. It was her first ever attempt at knitting a pattern, and it turned out so-so, but she's going to give it to him tomorrow anyways.
Close-up. He's a pretty cute snail, really, even if he's not what he could have been with a more experienced knitter. He's got little beads at the tip of his antennae and for an eye.

Those gloves are a very good idea. And we knew that was a snail right away! We like your mum's work very much. She is a good knitter:)

Knitting isn't easy. I think the snail looks great. Those hand things are a good idea.

First, the hat is great and the snail is really cute. Don't put down your efforts. I don't think mom could make a cuter snail. As for the fingerless gloves, mom has a pair made of cashmere that go up to her second knuckle for when she played the clarinet. They were really cool.
