They are beautiful! I agree with you about the edge on the Fetchings -- they didn't keep the backs of my hands warm, so I reworked them with some decreases and then used a normal bind-off instead of the picot bind-off. But I like your idea of using ribbing a lot -- maybe I'll do that next time. I love the way you worked the decreases on the hat. Thanks for explaining how you did it. She's going to love this set!

I'm always amazed when someone says, "I winged it." (I'm one of those follow-a-pattern girls.) Your hat and mitts turned out absolutely perfect!!! I'm so impressed.
