Almost FO: a hat, mittens, and half a scarf :)
My destashing efforts plus cooler weather resulted in this set for my daughter. The pattern for a hat is a free Baby Berry Hat. If the mittens look strange on the edges it is because they are I experimented with increases a bit but I will make a few more pairs with better yarn trying to a)follow the pattern which calls for yo increases (holes?) b)using yet a different increase. The scarf is simple double knitting that matches the texture of both hat and mittens. It's boring to finish it and I just got a whole big bag of wool to start something more exciting so I will finish this scarf later.

Oh, and the colour is completely wrong It's actually nice light lilac with some strange fluorescent quality to it. But every time I make a picture it comes out differently in either blue or purple shades
