I found some more FOs

100_1716Yesterday I managed to finish two hats!  One needs to be felted though, so I won’t bother showing it to you yet.  I also still do not have buttons for the Pinwheel sweater, so for now I’m using a stitch holder.  Oh yeah, don’t pay attention to the crumbs on The Baby’s face!  I am notorious for forget100_1715ting to clean her face after meals – lol.   Here’s the official stats on the sweater:

  • Pattern – Pinwheel sweater by Shelley Mackie
  • Yarn – Knitpicks’ Wool of the Andes and Elann’s Peruvian wool.  The whole thing took less than 6 balls.
  • Needles – US sizes 6 and 7
  • Took me – about two weeks
  • Comments – This was a really fun knit!  So easy and so cute, I definitely have to make one for my niece. 

Next we have the Amber hat.  I casted on in the morning and finished during nap time.  The only reason I got it done so quick is that I skipped my chores, I’m not really a fast knitter!  Official stats:

  • Pattern – Amber hat by Susan Lawrence100_1725_2
  • Yarn – Knitpicks’ Wool of the Andes
  • Needles – US sizes 6 and 8
  • Took me – a few hours
  • Comments – I’d never knit a hat like this one, I really like the way the top is done!  I also enjoyed the colorwork, simple but satisfying.  Thanks for a great pattern Susan!

So that’s all I have for today.  I hope to get the other hat felted today, I don’t know how much knitting I’ll do though.  I’m sort of not in the mood right now, and I have some errands to run today.  Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Cute sweater! I actually thought you were making the adult size for yourself. Silly me! I love it as a child’s garment. I am now considering making one for my niece…Do you think it would fit a 5 year old? It says baby to four…I would probably have to size it up, wouldn’t I?
