2 FOs: convertible mittens and a hat
I finished another pair (this time for me) of convertible mittens and a hat for my mom. The hat is the Black Forest Hat, by Suzy Crancer and which is a free Ravelry download, and the mittens are a combination of three patterns: Knucks, Pele, and Broad Street Mittens. I really like the Knucks pattern of making the gloves fingers-down. I had to do some fiddling to get the thumb hat just right, and now I've decided the next pair will have the opening in the back rather than the front.

Lovely hat!

Ohh, neat idea on making the thumb open on the back - I'm just starting a new pair of mittens, will have to think about doing it like that so I can use my ipod!
