Everyone in the house is obsessed with Doctor Who. I've decided to Who it up this Yule, starting with Dalek mittens for my boys. These are the first pair and were supposed to be for my older boy, but they fit my younger. The pattern is one adult size only, so I had to modify it for kids. The only thing I'm not happy about are the thumbs, which I might redo once I can properly try them on him (I've slipped them on while he was sleeping, but he refused to keep still). I think the second pair should be perfect. I adore the pattern! I used wool so they'd be nice and toasty, and maybe felt a little, for what is sure to be a snowy winter.

Here's the pattern, Dalek Mittens

Ruby Cowl/Snood

I made this lovely cowl/snood/neck warmer from one skein of Cascade alpaca bulky in ruby. It was a super quick knit and easy pattern to follow. I continued knitting in pattern until I was out of yarn so it's long enough to wrap twice. I love it!

The pattern is free and called Urban Cowl, by Jeannie Cuevas. I highly recommend it!
