Sunday Knitting

My not-quite-matching set of winter accessories are done.

First, the Gaptastic Cowl. Here it is doubled, similar to how I would wear it.
And here it is in its natural state.
The Squall hat:
And Squall mittens:
I'm actually surprised by how different the colors look in that picture. Maybe it's the light? Anyhow, they don't look quite that different in real life.

Here are the mittens with one of them turned so you can see the garter stitch palm:

My fingers got very cold while I was taking these pictures.

The patterns are:
GAP-tastic Cowl by Jen Geigley, a free Ravelry download
Squall Set by Glenna C. The patterns can be purchased separately for $4, or the set for $6.

I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky for all the accessories. The patterns were all well-written and easy to follow, and the projects quick and satisfying. None of these are blocked in the photos, because I've been wearing them all since the moment I finished them. They're exactly what I was looking for, and perfect for these very cold days we've been having.
