FO-Emma's Christmas hat & mitts

Another one off the needles! Whew. Time is closing in and I still have so many things going. It feels good to finish another project :)
A hat & fingerless mitts set for Emma, in her favorite color. I ordered this yarn especially for her. The colorway is Happy Forest, and it has tiny flecks of silver stranded throughout.

Here's a great detail shot fo the hat. It's a pretty basic cabled pattern That I liked and wasn't hard to follow. I used fingering weight (sock yarn) so I had to hold 2 strands throughout the project so that it would be warm enough.

The resulting fabric is nice and thick, without being overly warm. I think she will love it!
