Anyhow, back to Em's set. The hat and mittens were both free patterns and I did plain old garter on the scarf and just changed colors when it felt right. I guessed on the size of the mittens and they are way too small. I hope Emiley will put them on one of her prized Build-a Bear friends and I will knit her another pair :)

A Set for Em
This is a little set I knit for my niece, Emiley. She is 7 and an amazing, beautiful, SMART girl. I have asked her mom to send me a picture of her wearing it but I'm still waiting... I really want to see that hat on her :) Purple and green are Em's favorite colors and I knit this up with Tahki Yarns Torino. This yarn is so soft and springy but a little pricey at $8.25 for a small ball of 94 yds. I did love knitting with it. I bought it at a beautiful local yarn store up in Mill Creek. Main Street Yarn is a light-filled, big for a yarn shop, store with a great selection of yarns, patterns, books, bags, needles etc. I can spend hours there just browsing.
