Hat and mittens

On Saturday night I made this hat (from The Beloved Peace Fleece, if you're interested). Only I upsized it, on account of my ginormous noggin. Except, as it turned out, I needn't have. The hat was huge! So I unraveled the entire thing and restarted it on Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, I had a hat that fit.

Here you can see the super cool button action!

I love the hat so much that I decided I needed matching fingerless mittens. So I set about to create a pattern. I cast on for those Sunday night, and finished the first one yesterday.

I'm feeling flush with triumph and my only remaining hope for these mittens is that I have enough yarn left from the hat the first mitten to actually finish the second!
