Swings both ways

I don’t, but the hat does……….and the mittens do too!

I started knitting this hat before the holidays, intending for it to be a Christmas present for someone but then I kinda just liked it for myself and so I put it aside and picked up something new to give.

I finished the hat during the break and found I had just enough yarn to make me some fingerless mittens as well.

I used a fun little stitch pattern that looks just as fun, in my opinion, on both sides.  Usually I don’t wear hats, just find that they look weird on me, but I kinda like this one and love that I got two for the price of one :0)

Now, about the yarn: Classic Elite Montera, 50 % wool and 50% llama.  It is gorgeous!  I LOVED knitting with it, it’s so squishy and the stitch definition is beautiful and it has this cozy halo of fiber……mmmmmm just love it!

P.S. it’s extremely warm as well

      en ég vil vera stelpa Kristín! Takk fyrir sæta pæja:) Elska litina í húfunni, eitthvað svo upplífgandi og hressandi án þess að vera eitthvað neon dæmi:)
