Welcome back to the next WIP Wed!  I'm glad to have you still here!

A double-knit mitten still live on double-pointed needles.  Someone is trying on the cuff. The yarn is green and brown, and there is a silver feather stitch marker clipped into the knitting.
Well, now that I've finished the Ice Cream Sundae Sock, I can show you folks the Symbol Mitts again (they are mitts, rather then gloves, by my brain categorization process -- gloves have fingers, mittens don't! So yes, I'll probably end up re-naming the pattern.)

I've been working on them here and there between other things, so there's not a lot of progress -- but, you can see the pattern now!

Yarn is *Northbound Knitting Superwash Merino/Nylon Fingering, in "Littoria" and "Espresso."  It's a bit more splitty then some of the other Merino/Nylon blends I've worked with, but it's not the end of the world.  The silver feather stitch marker is another awesome find from *EfficientSense's Etsy Store

My yarn is twisting less, now that I'm not doing double-knit ribbing. I think it's something in my knitting style that has the yarn twisting up as I work. I have the same problem in colourwork if I'm not extremely careful about my yarn dominance, so I'm sort of used to it, but I'm wondering if anyone else has the experience of their yarn twisting while they're doing two-colour double knitting?

And double-knitting definitely is easier (and goes faster) when you're not knitting ribbing!

Anyway, that's it for this week's WIP Wed!   As always, please post your own crafty WIP awesomeness to the comments -- I love to see what folks are working on!
