FO: Snapdragon tam and mittens

Ooooh, she knit something in purple. I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you.

(sorry about the relatively poor quality of the photos – I’m knee-deep in curtain poles, screwdrivers and plaster dust!)

The colour of the hat is way off – it’s a much deeper purple that this.

  1. LOVE that hat! I had it on a possible to-do list for my mum, who has requested a beret, and thought maybe too floppy, but it actually doesn’t look like it. Looks like it might be perfect.

  2. Ooh! Super cute set! Ysolda has very lovely designs and that purple is a gorgeous color to choose for them. I am a bit sad to think it’s winter time though…Well that’s pretty darn relative where I am, but you know what I mean 🙂
