and a sweater!

A headless me:

I've already worn it a couple of times, but just didn't get around to posting a picture. The sweater is very warm, perfect for my icy cold office! I really like how it fits, and I almost want another one in another yarn. This is Filatura di Crosa 501 in a brownish tweedy color, not the softest yarn ever, but I still like it.

And another projet that would fit the Lonesome Skein knitalong:

A simple hat for the 7-year-old in a worsted weight superwash wool/nylon blend. It probably tells you something about the chaos in our basement that it was faster to knit him a new hat than go find the old one, stashed away somewhere in a pile of dozens of boxes. Oh, the joys of remodeling...

That sweater looks amazing on you, what is the pattern you used? Good job! And cute little one-skein hat on your son, don't worry about it being faster/easier to just knit a new one, I do that for myself half the time!
