Two projects for September!

I fell in love with SpillyJane's Gnome mittens. This is my first stranded colorwork project ever. They aren't perfect and they pucker where the 2 circs met but, when they are on my hands, no one knows but me!

My second project is my usual pair of socks. These are for my 13 year old son in his school colors. He wore them to school the day after they were finished and said he was showing them off in math class.
