Pattern: My own
Yarn: Noro Kogarashi, colorway #10, 51% silk and 49% wool.
Needles: US #8 and US #10
Comments: For some unknown reason I decided that I'd soften the colors in the hat with a strand of Rowan's Kidsilk Haze. It does make the hat warmer and softer but the mittens and the pom-pom look slightly different.
When I was knitting with this yarn, I really didn't like it much. But I really do like the way the projects turned out, and I will probably like them even better after they have been in the closet all summer. Sometimes I feel like I get "too much" of a project and have to shelf it for awhile before I can truly appreciate it.
