ON THE NEEDLES


Two finishes - a "Hurricane Hat" from Ravelery  made in a 70% alpaca 30% merino yarn in a coral colour.  The second is another pair of mitts using the the greenish gray yarn.  I borrowed the design from the scarf in the same colour to decorate the back of each mitten.  I think I need to learn to knit mitts on 4 needles instead of the 2-needle version that I usually make.  Maybe I could adapt the method of knitting socks on a cable needle to mitts......

  2. I like your cat. Was it an easy pattern for a beginner? After a few more pairs of socks, mittens are on my list of things to do too. That is such a pretty pattern on top of yours.
