What I made in Adelaide

These were the only photos either of us took for the whole 8 days we were in Adelaide. The photos were taken in Adelaide's Rundle Mall, by the famous Rundle Balls . In some of them you can see me, reflected in the background. 
So, as previously mentioned while away with Leon I like to knit for Leon. I started his winter set, the wonderful Autobahn pattern from Twist. It's taken me a while to understand Twist collective but now I've got the hang of it! The pattern is clearly written and well charted. And, the most important thing for a scarf pattern, fully reversible.
I started with the hat, and then I did mitts - there wasn't a mitts pattern so I just transferred the pattern onto a forty stitch gusseted mitt. They have, perhaps, come out a little tight, but they look pretty and will keep Leon's hands warm.
Then I started the scarf. I struggled with the pattern at first, even though I had already knit the hat and gloves with the same pattern, and there was some ripping and swearing. Still after I got the hang of it I have been chugging along nicely, albeit with no great speed...
