Finished Purr/Hiss Set

These are a secret surprise present for a close friend. They are a variation on the Kittyville hat and the Knucks, made as a matching set in Jaeger Extra Fine Merino in a charcoal colour, with embroidery in a pale purple Jaeger Alpaca 4ply. My daughter is modelling them for me, she really likes them. They are both super soft and warm - the hat is two held together of 4ply and dk and the Knucks are just the dk. The Purr/Hiss is obviously the cat version of Love/Hate.The tassles are much nicer than the original pom-poms, I think. I'm really really pleased with how these turned out :D

And here's the finished second set in green, also modelled by my super gorgeous daughter. :D

Can I have two asterisks pretty please?

Pairing the "purr, hiss" Knucks with the Kitty hat is such a cute idea - I love it!
