Austin hat and mittens!

So, I love this yarn.  I NEEDED to buy it and make it into a hat.  I'm not entirely sure I did the yarn justice with this hat.  I feel like it may be a little plain, maybe needed to throw in some cables?  However, it does look a lot cuter on my head than on my desk, and maybe I'll take a picture of that some other time, but for now, this is all you get. 

I love the colors, the feel, the way the yarn is made.  It is also ridiculously warm.  

I ended up with a little bit of yarn left after making the hat.  Not really enough to make anything out of it, but it seemed so wrong to waste any of it.  So I made some mittens and used it for the cuffs.

I am not as enamored with these as I am with my hat.  But they are still pretty cute (and also very warm). 

So, I have my official souvenier from Austin.  I couldn't be happier.
