Early Morning Mittens

Doesn't this yarn look delishious. I figured I would make myself some fetching's. Finally I decided to splurge on some double pointed needles in order to make hats and mitts. I bought this yarn in SLO for I don't remember how much but it was well worth it.

Here is my first mitt and the colors are spectacular. I am in love with the brown and teal look so the fact that this has specks of gold and teal is amazing. I just wanted to start wearing them then but it would probablly be a bit dangerous having metal pokie sticks.

Sorry for the bad light quality on this pic but I had to take a picture of the finished product. This morning I finished the 2nd mitt and weaved in all the ends. I was tempted to wear them to work but figured they would need a little bath tonight. Now I must move on to another pair of mitts and then the sweater. ^_^

Nelson's Hat

So I made Nelson a hat. Yes he is a special boy to me. Well actually he is a man now. I decided that he was knit worthy when he would always wear his beanie to work.I had to undo have of the hat when the beanie fit with the brim folded up but I wanted more of a snug cap. So here is the finished cap on the side view. Very pretty cables.This was actually my very first cable hat hehe. The final view from the top is just stuning. I will have to knit myself this beautiful cap as well. But in a more girl friendly color. Olive green is just so boy!
