Brrrrrr! A good part of the United States is in a deep freeze! What better time to knit yourself some warm accessories?
This is A Playful Palette of 10 Knitted Accessories by Tabitha Hedrick and it is a collection of (you guessed it) accessories knit with fingering weight yarn. All of the designs are photographed knit using Koigu fingering weight yarn, but you could, of course, use any fingering weight yarn.
There’s a little bit of everything. Here’s a cute hat and fingerless mitt set:
A pair of socks:
You can view more photos of the projects here.
There’s a lot of useful information in the back of the book, including step-by-step illustrated instructions for basic techniques.

Thanks for all the nice comments about my recent;y completed Britta Cowl. After completing a time-consuming colorwork project, I wanted to cleanse the palate, as it were, with something relatively simple and mindless.
This is another Not-Viajante. It’s based on Martina Behm’s very popular Viajante pattern, but with a different rate of increase to make it wider, rather than a long skinny tube. I am also using a heavier yarn — Three Irish Girls Kells Sport in the Morgaine colorway. To get a loose fabric with nice drape I am knitting this with a U.S. size 7 needle.
I have to go now — Loki wants to play hide and seek.
