Birthday hat and scarf
My DD birthday is next week so I finished in plenty of time. Once again my favorite hat pattern ( link to the free hat pattern is in the mother and son hat post) and just a fast simple granite stitch scarf. The mittens are from the book FUNKY CHUNKY KNITTING by Jan Eton. The button on the hat is a perfect match. I noticed the color is just not even close in the pics. The mitts are two needle and so easy that it is almost a sin. The mitts pattern is my must have it done fast pattern. The book has a pair that buttons on the side with sweet little loops that go over the buttons. I have made several and everyone loves them. They are not serious mittens, but often I need a quick fix.
I still have the brown bag with the pink breast cancer ribbons on the needles. I am learning to really dislike this bag. I will change the handles. It must be done before Christmas. I have 6 more rows on the graph. The pattern is sound. It is just me dragging my feet. I have had so much fun making hats that the graph thing is a real drag.
I now have a big button collection for lovely hats I have been knitting. I am staying on my yarn budget . tee hee
