More knitting for yarn

After TW's Wallaby I didn't really have any big projects so decided to pick up a few more knitting jobs just to have something to do (and hey, more yarn!)

first up was a really nifty colorwork tam:

Pansy Garden Tam (rav pattern link, web link here)

the pattern came in a kit with pre-wound balls of jaggerspun wool. It was very clearly written, and while a few of the colors came a bit close to running out, it turned out great. I love color work, and this was such a pretty design!

After the Tam there was a nice trip Through the Woods!

The Through the Woods hood (rav link) was great fun to knit. And I think I want one for myself too!

I was almost done when I ran out of yarn, so the great lady I was knitting for sent more, with the request for a pair of matching mitts:

Both of these projects were a lot of fun, the cables were simple, but very classic looking, and I just love how the hood turned out.

Project links: hood, mitts.
