The Only Christmas Gift This Year

Well, not the only one I gave, but the only one I made.

I had a bunch of light blue and gray Palette yarn from Knit Picks from a frogged project, so I set about making a hat at random.

At first I thought I was going to end up selling this hat, until it came time to decide on Christmas presents. I decided instead that it would be perfect to give one of my grandmas.

Once I had that in mind, I also decided to make a pair of gloves to go along with it.

And now, matching gloves. #knitting

I was going to wing it on the glove pattern, until I realized the book I was using the sizing chart from, Custom Knits Accessories, had the perfect pattern.

I applied the same style of stripe pattern to both the hat and gloves, a bit bigger for the hat than for the gloves. It’s my favorite way to stripe two colors together.
