I have a finished object to report! And it's a cutie.

One of my co-workers left today to start her maternity leave. I put together a little hat-and-mitten set:
So sweet! I don't have anything in there for scale, but trust me--they're small.

The cap is Watchcap, which I modified by using 2x2 ribbing instead of 3x3. I made a single Knitted Flower and attached it to the brim.

I decided that I had to make the fingerless mittens to go along with it after seeing the ones CCR made. She gave me a tutorial at Stitch-n-Bitch, though with my sport-weight yarn and size 6 needles, I cast on only 24 stitches instead of her 28. I did 2x2 ribbing on the cuffs so they'd match the hat.

And the best part is that I made this from my Peruvian alpaca stash! I've been trying to figure out what to do with this pink, so I'm glad this came up. These are so soft and smooshy!
