So this cowl has a really cool cable pattern and it is warm, but I don't like how it rolls at the bottom. This pic is kinda weird because of the way I am holding my head, but I wanted to show the cable better. I think my pattern needs a little tweaking also I think I will use different yarn this one is a little too stiff although soft(Lion Brand organic cotton).

This hat sort of came by accident, it was meant for my Dad. Milo the sweetie that he is, got into my knitting bag and kindly ripped it off my needles. Like a lot of knitters, I have several projects going at once; I had a smaller set of circulars in my bag for which its project had moved on dpn's, so when I found the narled mess that was my dad's hat I cried and then picked up my needles and began again. It wasn't until far into the project that I realized it was going to be much too small for my dear old dad. It ended up being a good thing, because I didn't have enough yarn to finish an entire hat for an adult male anyway. It could fit me as more of a skull cap but I think like me, most people prefer their hats to cover their ears at least a bit. So it is a size 2-4years hat. I tried to get the naughty Milo to model it as well but he just cried and ripped it off promptly(busy playing wii with his big bro).
