Pinks.....knitting

I've been knitting.......
Yeah!
Knitting!
My current full time obsession!
Am enjoying every moment of it though.......
Got some pink yarn and wanted to do some scarf and mitten stuff.
.

.
Started off with the scarf...
Simple pattern...
Wanted to do something on the lines of  'FISHNET'
Good practice for 'decreases' too.
The centred double decrease, the k2tog and the ssk types.
The result is a large arrowhead kind of pattern.
As I'm LEFT HANDED,
All the decreases come out opposite of the slant they are ment to produce!
I had to substitute the k2tog with the ssk and vice versa!
.



.
Got down to make matching mittens with the same pattern.
Though it was easy to do the left hand one with thek2tog decs,
The right on was spiralling out of control!
With some tweeking got the final mittens...
Not perfect at all
but
lovely!
I put on gold rose buttons I have had for sometime on the cuff
which do make them look pretty.
They were cut off a cardigan my mom was about to throw off!
.



.


.
The scarf's got a curve along it's spine which is quite distinct
and makes it wearable in several ways...
.

.
opened up or doubled up....
.

.

That's me wearing the set .
The scarf is doubled up.
See the side seam of the mitten showing?
I guess the pattern needs some modifications to prevent that!
Also,
in the picture is the black rose beaded brooch
I tatted that I wear on my coat!
.

Still more on knitting to come......
