Leon's winter set 2017 - it begins

I’m making Leon’s Winter Set (2017) from Kate Davies’ Singing Sands pattern. I adapted last years Pawkies mitts by slotting in the Singing  Sands colourwork pattern. Luckily both pattern are knitted over 14 stitches, so that was very simple.

I used a tubular cast on and cast off. I love the way it looks, but it’s a pain to work and really isn’t very stretchy, despite what the internet says. I had to redo the first one, because it lacked stretch and looked funny:
I’m really happy with how they look. I was surprised when Leon choose these colours, because the blue/green colour is very pretty.
Now onwards, to the scarf. Winter is coming and I started this later than I usually make Leon’s Winter Set.
