Hat and Mittens

I knitted these with Bamboo Ewe yarn. I made the mittens first then the hat. I ran out of yarn before I could finish the hat to the decrease section is made with a small ball of Paton's wool that was leftover from another project. Then, so it would look like I changed colors on purpose, I crocheted the little flowers and sewed them onto the hat and onto the back of the mittens.

Knitted scarves

Here are 2 scarves I made. The first one with the horizontal stripes I just finished last night. It is knitted with Fantasy Naturale Yarn which is 100% cotton. It is to be donated to the Knitz 4 Vetz sponsored by The Knit With store in Pennsylvania. The second scarf is knitted using the mistake rib pattern. I believe I used mostly Vanna's Choice Yarn and Michael's Impeccable Yarn. One reason for this scarf is to use up leftover bits of yarn and the other reason for making this scarf is because I thought it would look nice.
