I finished Susie's Reading Mitts that I told you about a couple of weeks ago. Yarn info is in that post, too. They were pretty quick, not difficult, and fun. I especially like the surprise scalloped edge that I didn't see coming! I thought they might be good for blogging, and I'm wearing them now, so I can tell you that they aren't. Particularly. They're just a little too snug around the hand to allow my pinkies to stretch out fully and reach those shift keys! But I wouldn't want them any looser, either, so I'll just have to blog with cold fingers.
I had 3 skeins of that yarn, and the mitts used a tiny bit more than one. I was able to make this long-awaited slouch beanie with the rest of it (I have a tiny little ball left!) which my my girl loves. She has been wearing it ever since I finished it. I think I'd like a turn with it because the yarn is so soft and light and warm. It's delicious. I don't usually say that about yarn, but it is!
Cute cables ended just in time, because I had had quite enough of them!
She's such a doll; I think she deserves an adorable hat.
