Yarn goodness

Busy with yarn and hook putting together this collar and mittens set.

The yarn is a lovely golden brown colour, I know it doesn't look like that in the picture, as it is a tencel mix it is very soft and snuggly.

The gorgeous green bamboo yarn became this pretty froggie dishcloth.

The pattern for this is a freebie over at frogiez place - she has lots of other free knit patterns there too just check the list on the side bar. It was very easy to follow and turned out just like the picture - amazing really.
I started on some more mitts today at my craft group, this time in a pretty mohair mix, I want to keep them for me but these are all contributions for family birthday season.
Hope there is some snuggly warmth in your world this week.
