{Handmade Christmas} Hats and Gloves

This one isn't so big a secret these days... As it was guessed in October. Darn!

But at least that means I can take some nice photos of it for you to see. I got the pattern here from this talented lady.

I made the hat and fingerless mitts in about 2 days worth of evening sewing, so not very long at all. The flower took about an hour, but it's actually one of my Crochet Flower Brooches, so it's removable and can be worn on bags, jackets, dresses or shirts too!

For my fellow yarn geeks, the yarns are King Cole Merino Blend DK in Black (which is really great to work with, machine washable, so soft and pretty darn cheap), and Rowan Tapestry in Lakeland, which is sadly discontinued, but you can often find the odd ball on Ebay or Ravelry, a great yarn for felting though, so don't put it in the washing machine!
