Morning Fog Mits

Here's a quick pattern that's great for using up yarn scraps. I loved the result, and plan to make a few pairs to wear under jackets this winter. The pattern is available as a free ravelry download (search "morning fog mitts"). Sizing seems to be accurate (small is definitely small, not a one-size-fits-all size).

Here's the finished adult ribbed hat, previously described in this post. My first pass at it was far too large, and had to wrap out most of the stitches and start over. It came out perfectly, eventually - very soft, thin, and warm. I'm happy with the trim color - the request was for blue with a red stripe, but I didn't want a bright, nautical look. The red is nearly pink, and much more subtle.

Baby Hats

I've been traveling for the last month - Catalina, Oregon, and two great weeks in Italy. I have several projects partially completed, and am looking forward to having some down time to wrap them up. In the meantime, here are two pics from friends of their adorable children modeling recent gifts.
