January PrimeTime braids

Hooray, I got pics up in time!

I had a bit of a thing for braids this month. I started and finished the hat entirely on the planes and trains between Stuttgart and San Francisco, and did most of the mittens on the journey back to Stuttgart. We left for Denmark a few days later ... finished the mittens, and waited for some prime internet time. (Yup, those are airline seats in the WIP photos).

I finally saw and touched some Kauni. I can't see what all the fuss is about. It's awfully scratchy. The colors are nice, though.

That hat and those mittens are so nice. It looks like it is snowing on the yarn and the cable work is so nice. They look toasty warm too.

Everybody seems to like this yarn! It's a local department store brand, and kind of a cheap yarn (in every sense of the word). It's soft and washes well, though, and it will be worn. And that's better than using a high-quality yarn for something that just sits in a drawer.
