FOs Felicity and Bella's Mittens

I have a few quick FOs to share, both completed post ravelympics. A few months ago I bought the most beautiful sparkly yarn, Plymouth baby alpaca glow. I started three different hat patterns before I settled on Felicity and I'm so glad I went with this pattern. It was a nice, easy knit and came out so nice. It has the perfect amount of slouch and looks very hip. This isn't the best angle but it really is flattering. I love how sometimes the most simple knits are the best looking. The hat was knit on US 5 and US7 and I cast on I think 10 extra stitches.

Next up a second pair of Bellas Mittens in Cascade Superwash Chunky 128, US8. I love this pattern. The mitts come out super cute and were great over a long sleeved shirt when walking on the beach. The flip top ones I knit in Perivia are warmer and don't let as much wind through but they are not wearing well.

.I felt very Twilighty walking on the beach in these mittens. We love it there in the off season because we can bring the little lady.

I love that cute puppy dog, they are very Sempati. Your dog is what breed of Collie or Border Collie?
