FO: Evangeline fingerless gloves

I've had a hard time finding time to knit, since any time I'm not nursing I'm sewing!  But I recently discovered that nursing and knitting are not mutually exclusive, so I finally finished these mitts!
My hands get cold easily, so even though it doesn't get all that cold in Texas, I wear gloves a lot.  But it's really hard to use a touch screen with traditional gloves.  I've missed a few calls, so I decided I needed some of these.  I decided to knit long ones so that they'll cover my arms when I wear my Simplicity 2808 jacket, which I do all the time.  The cable makes me happy.  It's beautiful and was really fun to knit.  Rav notes are here.

I've got a few irons in the fire right now sewing-wise.  I'm doing a few things for a pair of weddings - making a bolero for a bride and adding sleeves to a bridesmaid dress, so that's been keeping me pretty busy.  I'll share the bolero muslins with you when I get to fit the bride!
