As promised, here are some of our latest finished projects. This is a Christmas present to my dear friend Monica, doesn't she look simply ripping? My goal was to come up with a versatile hat/mitten set with just a little bit of red (to match her new red coat!). Which is why I incorporated these sweet little vintage buttons (the one on the hat is bakelite). The yarn is a new favorite I've recently become obsessed with. It's a Michigan brand and must be the softest wool I've ever worked with (Stonehedge Fiber Mill - in case you're wondering). As for the knitting patterns, the mittens are a variation on the ruffle mits from Boutique Knits. The hat, however, was a little creation of my own. I'm soo thrilled with how they both came out and soo happy that they are just as cute as their new owner.
