Knitting projects

I have finally finished two projects that were in my knitting queue.  These were supposed to be Christmas presents but were slightly tardy, one because I was procrastinating difficult and/or new things and the other because I ended up remaking it for fit.

The first is a sweater made of cotton and hemp for our little grandson in Hawaii.  Hopefully by now it has arrived at its destination. (Too bad I forgot to get a good photo before I sealed it up in the box.  Here it is being blocked.)

The second is a hat (Pastaza Hats pattern by Cascade yarns) for my friend Jenna.  The original (left) was way too big and very pointy.  I remade a smaller size and eliminated nearly 30 rows of pointiness.  It fits just right.

It sure feels good to finish things.

    Your knitting is just beautiful! Lucky grandson, lucky friend. I love the style of the sweater with the kangaroo pocket in front. I bet that was complicated to make.

    All three are beautiful. I can’t believe you made the hat twice. You are always pushing yourself!
