Last month I shared with you my Paris-Roubaix scarf made with my newest yarn Oasis. Because I had snagged 2 skeins of it for myself, I decided to knit the hat and mitts that went with the scarf.......only I changed it up quite a bit.
As you can see I knit the hat in the Paris-Roubaix Pattern, but instead of starting right with the pattern, I did a few rounds of garter stitch holding 1 strand of the Oasis yarn with 1 strand of handspun Angora from my bunnies here. I like that little added softness on my forehead. :)
Instead of making mitts, I opted to make full mittens because it is has been very cold up here....bbrrrrrr! I used the same strand of Oasis with the strand of handspun angora for the thumbs and tops which made for very cozy mittens. As you can see....little Miss puppy have given it her seal of approval. :)
Speaking of the little Miss, I am hoping for a little help here. Before she was born and after I found out that there was only going to be one, I jokingly said if it's a girl it will be
Ballymena Think Pink, and if it's a boy it will be
Ballymena Darn It's Blue.
Well "Think Pink" has kind of stuck, but now I need to come up with an everyday name to call her that has something to do with pink....but not Rose.
So.........put on your thinking caps. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. ;)
