Simple Knitted Beanie

This knitted beanie is knitted in the round, and uses two different colours of wool to achieve the effect below.    I loosely adapted this pattern from others that I have found around the net, but special mention goes to the Happily Ever After Hat upon which I based the crown shaping for this hat.  I knitted it in acrylic wool, which for anyone who has seen any other of my knitting posts you will know I hate, but unfortunately our local store is pretty woeful in the wool department, so I have a very limited range to choose from.  

Here is a photo of the hat with matching gloves...

Simple Fingerless Gloves

Just finished my first attempt at fingerless gloves!  First time I have knitted in about 10 years, and they turned out awesome :D I've also knitted a set for a friend's birthday, and she loved them :)
