The hat, mittens, and keyhole scarf are for my 'gift elf' from the knitter's review forum. (I'm pretty sure she doesn't come over here.) I had to show them off somewhere because I am so excited to be done. (My snow day off on Friday helped a lot.) The patterns were all free. The mittens are Kate Gilbert's gifted mittens, the keyhole scarf is the 'staples can kiss my a$$' scarf from chicknits, and the hat is free from the Lion Brand website. I knit these up in Elann's peruvian highland chunky, color 'spiced wine'.

They look great!  Love the color too.

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything and at the same time, are ones who never yawn or say a common place thing but burn, burn, burn, like yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...

Those are beautiful!

Someday I, too, will have a hat, scarf, and mittens that all actually match.

Me three.  I knit myself a fingerless mitten in lime green, and then a hat in turquoise and now a scarf in blue-purple.  The color just doesn't match at all but it keeps me warm.

Excellent.  Smiley
I have much appreciation for anybody who shares my love of hats and mittens.  Yay for hats and mittens.  Cheesy

(are you going to add a cord so they don't get lost?  my last pair of mittens had a cord specifically requested so the wearer wouldn't lose them!  maybe a detachable cord?   Shocked)

I've got extra yarn, so I will send that in the package with the gifts. If she wants to add a cord she can that way. I know not everyone likes the cord though--and since the gift is a secret I can't really ask her if she wants one.  Smiley
