Mittens and kittens

With the frigid and snowy weather we have been having, my hands have been really cold. I made a pair of felted mittens last week, as you know, but needed to make alpaca liners to have that extra layer of warmth. So, here they are:

It was very warm to knit with cats cuddled up next to me on the couch, and we all are hoping our feral kitten Shadow, will join us, but she prefers to run around. She is furry enough, it seems!

In other news, I knit another cowl, to test the lace design, and I think I like the first design better.But both are lovely and warm! Pattern is Blackbird Cowl, and I'm looking for testknitters, so let me know if you'd like the pattern!

I would love to try this. Just finishing up a grand kid sweater so this would be next.
