Those were Xmas presnets for my SIL and MIL. I like to knit/crochet stuff for them, although I'm usually always late (my SIL got only ONE mitt in her stockings..  Undecided  )
Anyhow, here's the beret, made after a pattern published in Marie Claire Idees (that's a french mag). I thought I'd be ok with only one skein of Kureyon, but Ha ! .. Had to order more so it took much longer than it should have. (modeled here by my girl..)

And then here are my fingerless mittens, kind of assorted to a cardi I'm knitting as well. I loved making them, actually made a second pair with the same yarn (colonia 140), and then started a third one with some Malabrigo... So quick to make too. (I knit them flat, then sew them, so much faster in my book than having to juggle with dpns..)

(nb: please don't ask why one pic is larger than the other..resized them the same, and yet.. Ha the great mysteries of computing ! and no time to invetigate that now..)

Cute.  I like the mittens.  Do you seam them along the outside edge?  I normally do mine in the round, but it seems like it would be faster to knit flat, but I'm not sure how my seams would turn out.  I worry they'd be bumpy.  Anyway, you did a good job.  Are you loving making mittens out of malabrigo?  I have a pair on the needles now, and I could sit and pet them all day long.

Thanks, yes that's exactly what I did, and to me they look all right enough.
I mean sure they'd look more perfect knit in the round but really can't be bothered. It's already hard enough to take the time to knit, I know I'd be discouraged in advance if I were to do them on dpns.
I don't find the seam bumpy, it's just the pattern doesn't look as neat there as on the rest of the mitt. But then it's located at a place people don't usually look at, so I figure I'm the only one noticing they're not "perfect"..  Wink

Anyway, your reply re-motivated me and i finished the first malabrigo mitt (had only the thumb and seam to finish, a matter of maybe 15 mn..  Tongue ) and I just took a pic so you can see. Top and bottom, with seam on lower edge of second pic..

And yes of course I love knitting with the Malabrigo !! Oh so soft, and the color change is so pretty !

I'd love to see your mittens too..!

These are really fantastic! I am always surprised to see fingerless mittens/gauntlets/wristwarmers/driving gloves (so many names!) that look different, and these really are unique! The yarn you used is perfect for them too. Great job!
