Whimsical little knits

August 25, 2008

Most everything I’m working on is part of something bigger, but I took some knitting time out over the weekend to knit up some fun little things.

Grown-up Booties – Artesano Aran in Sunset


Icing Swirl Hat – Misti Alpaca Chunky in Lipstick


Garter Stitch Mitts – Manos Silk Blend in Virgo

I have something sweet planned for these, but rest assured that the patterns for the first two will be available soon.
