Cold Weather Gear.

With the sweaters completed, I decided that the girls' dolls needed some cold weather gear.

For Christmas, I'm giving each of my nieces a hat knit from the yarn they selected at the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival last summer. There was a bit left in each skein, so I used it to create a set for their dolls.

Hats (improvised pattern).

and Mittens. (pattern here.)

I probably wouldn't use that mitten pattern again. It's clearly written, but I'm not sure that it creates the best fitting mitten. I would probably use sock yarn and a different pattern knit in the round next time.

But at least they match...
