Husband's Hat and Mittens

I finally got around to taking pictures of my husband's hat and mittens...I needed to do this while not letting him see since his birthday isn't for another couple of weeks.

Anyway, you've seen the hat before, but here it is again:


I still really like how it came out. Here's some detail of the stripes:


And now, finally, I have the mittens all done too:


And here's some detail of the same striping pattern I used on the hat:


I like how the mittens came out too.

Here they are all together. At some point it might be fun to get a photo of them with his coat, but he'd definitely notice me doing that! :)

The mittens turned out great!

I like that striping pattern. It's very handsome. (I was going to say pretty, but since it's for your DH....)
