I opened this thread this morning and then forgot to post in it... boy it's been one of those days.
I finished dd's mittens
The hat looks great! I might make it and I'll remember the part about the ribbing and ear flaps thanks for letting us know about that. I'm glad you liked it. It's fun seeing the pattern come out as you knit isn't it?
I'll take and post pics of the side of the bag when I finish it. I think it will be this weekend or early next week.
