Yipes! Stripes!

It seems the best way to get out of a slump is to start a new project, so here is the beginning of a striped glove.
I'm up to the thumb on this soon to be Christmas gift.
I've also finished half of the foot for the 2nd sock in my latest pair.
By the time I post Friday, I want to have these socks and the blue hat finished. If things are going really well, I'd also like to have one glove finished.
I was making gingerbread men to hang in the window when I discovered that dpns work really well for making holes to hang the cookies by.
Just an idea in case you don't have a straw on hand.

one, two, three, four, FIVE dpn's! Wow.. using four of them is like knitting with a porcupine for me!!
Your glove looks great, they are addicting.

Your socks always look so nice! What pattern do you use? I might have to break out the sock yarn after Christmas! I think I'm the slowest sock knitter ever. Maybe a toe up pattern would be better! :)

Here's the sock pattern link
The toe up pattern is so much easier to work with than a regular sock pattern. Everything is made in one piece so no sewing and no picking up stitches. Using 5 dpn gives me more room to work. I feel like I'm pulling the stitches too tight with 4.
