Half a perfect gift

This mitten/hat combo (Ravelry link) may be the most perfect gift for my sister, ever.


Well. If she lived in a climate that required such outerwear and not in Southern California. Here's to hoping that she'll get a job in Minnesota so I can knit these lovelies as a graduation gift! In the meantime, what are some other unusual ideas for stranded knitting besides the usual stars and snowflakes? (Ladybugs are clearly a prize winner...)

So, even if she stays in the SoCal, couldn't you translate this design into a tea cozy or a pillow or something that she could use? It's too good to let go!

Oh, I think it'll make a great "you graduated and can leave southern california!" gift. But I do like the idea of bugs on a pillow. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
