Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

Now that all our Christmas knitting is finished, and everyone is wearing the lovely hats, mitts, scarves, that we made for them, I think it's time now to make some things for ourselves.

So I decided to make this terrific hat from Woolly Wormhead from the newest colours that we have in the shop of Cascade 220. I love working with this yarn, and this pattern worked up so quickly. There are many patterns in the Woolly Wormhead line, each one prettier than the last. Come on in and see the whole series, I can see making a lot of hats from this line.

Whenever I see a pattern where I can make something in an HOUR, I am totally on board,lol! These fingerless mitts are just the thing to make for yourself to match your new Christmas coat, or the scarf that, hopefully, someone else made for you. The 'hour' refers to the time to make each mitt, but this pattern will make up a pair in a short evening! Plus, it's a FREE pattern, so that makes it even better! Mine were made from Sirdar Escape Chunky , it took 2 balls but if you got 3 balls there would be more that enough to make two pairs, one for you and one for a gift!

Here is the link for these cute fingerless mitts:

Happy Knitting!
