Hat & Finger Mitts (Trigger Mittens)

Well these are my matching hat and trigger mitts. I was going to attempt the traditional Nfld pattern with colours as you see below, but I am not that skilled in that yet. Learning new things every day though. The mitts below are compliments of my mother. She tells me the are Labrador Diamond finger mitts. They are the ultimate in warmth because they are a double knit mitt.

Cold Week!!!

Well it has been a cold week so far. Great for staying in and knitting; and having an excellent cup of tea compliments of Jackie & Nat.
My knitting this past weekend is a pair of heavy socks with Briggs & Little yarn... Trying different "traditional" Newfoundland colour combinations and styles of bands. Love the way the brown, white and red go together. They are going to be extra long to cover my calf. Love this pattern.
I have also finished off my "finger mitts"... see other post.

Sheep's Wool Hat

I knit this hat using 4.5mm circular needles and Brigg & Little Wool. Instead of braided ties, I knit I-cords.
