 Wool hat and mittens

I've finally gotten around to making my little guy (9 months old) a decent winter hat and mittens. The poor kid was really looking like a ragamuffin in his mismatched, ill-fitting hat and mittens. I got the inspiration for the mitts from Laura's post on this blog on December 11. The original "pattern"/recipe comes from Lisa's blog here (scroll down to November 19). I changed things up a bit and did a crochet/slip stitch chain instead of an I cord for the connector. The hat is from the Bernat pattern booklet called "Baby Love." Both were knit in Patons Classic Merino, color Bright Red. Both were really quick, easy projects that I was able to complete in a few hours. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to try them on my babe. Let's hope they fit! (Sorry for the dark picture. I didn't feel like waiting for sunlight to get this posted. Maybe I'll replace it with a nicer pic later. Or not . . . )
