This is a pair of mitts for a good old Canadian winter lol
Okay so i am making a hooded scarf for my "old lady" for Christmas, but I have ran into a pattern snag.
I need help reading this pattern so that I know what to do next. The scarf is easy, the hood I am having a problem with. I will type out the instructions and maybe someone can tell me what I am not getting here.

I have been busy getting ready for a sale this weekend lol. Any excuss to keep knitting, the grey cowl was inspired by our fellow knitter Paul, in a wool blend, the scarf is pure silk and the cardigan is Donegall Tweed

Great News! The Carolina Fiber Festival will be held on May 18-20, 2012 at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. I attended 2 years ago and had a great time.

A week or two ago I saw a young woman sporting a beehive hairdo. This woman was maybe in her mid 20’s and it wasn’t any disheveled Winehouse-esque look either. She was quite well dressed and her beehive was well done and perfectly in place.
Just finished a cowl for my sister. Used the pattern Elis (free pattern on Ravelry)...took a few tries to get the indian cross stitch correct, but I am pleased with the results. Here is a pic of it while blocking...looks better draped around the neck. Hope she likes it!
Just another quilt to show until I get my first knit project finished.
Just finished MMario's Queen Annes Lace!!! Took me four months to makeit so im super excited to have it done!!! I used 3 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in the Cyan colorway and it turned out beautiful!!! I would so knit this pattern again although after this behemoth of a project I think im going to take a break from lace for a little while and knit a few pairs of socks! HAH!
