A train journey, fugly free yarn and a (hopefully) cute hat

So, I had to take a train journey today and wanted to take somethings small and portable.

There is a new baby in the family, so I decided to use the yarn given away free with last month's Let's Knit and to follow one of their patterns for mitts and hat. (Well, the yarn's so fugly, I really couldn't be bothered to design something for it).

The yarn is as horrible to work with as it looks, but I hope that the new mum and dad like the hat and mitts - I think they look quite cute.

As for the rest of the yarn? It's been Russian joined to the scrap ball to be added to the next big blanket. And frankly, I think that's too good for it, but crochet may be a better option.

That's some terrifying looking yarn. Glad you found a use for it!
