hat for rob

nothing makes a better hat than cascade 200 wool!!!! it is what i've been using the past couple of hats.....not having much luck getting the hang of knitting stripes in the round....but by the time i got to the end of this hat i think i got it now.....
do you like the gray and navy? i think it is a nice change from going with my first instinct of black and gray....

fingerless mittens

you may remember this post about my first scarf....the short version to the story is that when i started the didn't go so well, so i ended up frogging it and starting over. but i didn't want to have all that work go to waste, so i turned it into a fingerless mitten

well tonight i finished the second to the set....only problem is....i think i will remake the original mitt now to match this one a bit better. should have known better and made it identical to the first. oh well....another project to work on i guess.
regardless, they will keep me warm!!!!
