Hats and mitts in the mail
Woke up to cold, rain and news of intense fighting in Pakistan. Seemed like a good day to parcel up some wooly warmth.
The five hats are ones I've worked on off and on over the past few months. The yellow and green are my favourites, really thick and warm. The pattern is Cabled Cap from Vogue Knitting on the Go: Cables: Mittens, Hats & Scarves. The mittens are Elizabeth's pattern and I finally got the hang of making thumbs without gaping holes where they attach. Many thanks to the Knitting Nurse at Home Ec Workshop. Now that I can make decent thumbs, I'm hoping for an improved mittens to hats ratio for future collections.
