My first ever gloves!

Pattern: Knotty Gloves by Julia Mueller
Wool: Mondial Ciao
Needles: 2.5mm

I love these gloves!!!  I have put off trying gloves for awhile, but was determined to knit a pair before I left Berlin.  I finished them around Norway and Sweden.
They will not be my last pair of gloves!!!

2 Hats for Wimps.

Pattern: Cable & Lace Hat by Kirstie McLeod
From: Simply Knitting Magazine 63, February 2010
Needles: 5 mm
Wool: Wolle Rödel Soft-Merino

A great pattern for an easy hat that is simple to knit in the car around windy roads of Sweden and Norway.

Made for Kelli and Lisa who swear that it is cold enough in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, to actually wear a beanie..
Personally I can't understand, but hope they will like them!

Adaption of the Wurm hat

Wurm by Katushika

3.0 mm needles
Yarn: Zitron Trekking Hand Art  - Karibik
This one has been done for awhile as well, but it had to wait to be shown as it is a gift for Cameron's teacher, Mr Shillitoe.  It is made from the same wool as his scarf that we gave him for Christmas.  Not to be worn at the moment in 35+ degrees, but the weather in Berlin will start to cool down soon.

Wavy Feathers Wimple

4.0 mm  needles
Yarn: Tausendschön Handgefärbte Sockenwolle Merino/Nylon 1 skein, 100 grams.

This wimple is a gift for Miss Beves, Alexander's teacher.  It's been finished for awhile, but had to hold on to it until the gift was given.
She won't be wearing it soon (currently tempretures over 35 degrees), but it won't be long before it starts to get cold again in Berlin.
