FO: Vancouver 2010 Olympic mittens and scarf knock-offs
With the upcoming Olympic Games, a friend of mine has been bugging me to make these things, which are sold in stores:

The designs are sewed on, not knitted, but I managed to pull off these instead, with the maple leaf knitted into the mitten:

The scarf that they sell in stores looks like this, I think:

My German language exchange partner is heading back to Germany in a few days and I whipped up a smaller buttoned neck warmer as a going-away thank-you present.

Very nice!

When I first saw this post I thought it said "scary knock-offs".

Those are awesome. I really like the scarf. I have a pair of the mittens (I got them when the torch went through Regina as the stores can't keep them on their shelves) and I agree they are really cheap mittens. I think I am too used to my homemade ones I have made and how warm and cozy they are and made to fit perfectly on me.
