Actual progress on something

I know the socks were supposed to be done by today for Socktoberfest, but after the Christmas present and Halloween costumes, I just didn't want a deadline for anything else. I'm also a member of the Knitting on the Road KAL and Conwy is the sock for October/November. I think I can manage by then. Meanwhile, I've started these:

Snowflake fingerless gloves on Page 33 of Knitting Fair Isle Mittens and Gloves by Carol Noble. I'm working them in Knit Picks Palette. The main color is Fog and the contrasting colors are White and Mist. This is my first real experience with Fair Isle and I'm enjoying it very much.

Your snowflake gloves are just stunning!! Such beautiful colors and I love the patternwork. I've always been intimidated by Fair Isle, but it looks so darned beautiful!! You are doing an amazing job on those gloves- can't wait to see the completed pair! :-)

The mittens are turning out very nicely. The mittens are a great choice for practicing fair isle patterns.

Isn't Fair Isle fun? And it's so impressive! Everyone thinks it's difficult, but it's a well kept secret that there are few things more entertaining.

Do you have any Fair Isle hints or tricks you can share with us? I've been scared to try it... but enticed as well.

Also: stupid question alert: I've spun some wool onto a spool. Now what???
