I've been knitting and have More FO'S!!!!!

I have been trying to knit up the yarn from my stash so these next 2 projects are definitely stash buster projects. These two where not on my list but I saw the and decided to try them I really like how they came out and the are supper warm. technically the hat still needs a button but that is a tiny technically.

Name:My not so Blue Hat
Yarn:Sirdar Click
Needle: US#10 6mm
Cast on: Sept 11th 2008
Bind Off:Sept 13th 2008

Name:Purple Cabled Mitts
Needle: US#8 5mm
Yarn: Sidar Click
Cast on: 12th Sept 2008
Bind Off:15th Sept 2008

Also I have finally cast on for my first Fetching I am really liking the yarn I am using which is the Wool of the Andes from Knit Picks. I didn't think that a bargain Wool would be so nice to knit with. I definitely think the next project will be the Cobblestone Jumper from my list as the weather is getting just cold enough for Dh to need to wear it. Or maybe that's just my opinion as I think my body is still adjusting to the British weather.Don't get me wrong I absolutely love it here but the weather is so unpredictable I think it changes every 5-10 mins or maybe 2-10 steps. :0)
