FO Kids Hat

Project Details:
Simple Beanie Hat.  Started on January 24 and finished January 26.  Fast knit with hand dyed yarn.  Size 5 and 6 needles.  This is a bit on the tight side - I measured her head to be 17.5" and that is what I knit - but tight nonetheless.  Next time a bit bigger.

FO Dog Sweater

I've never made a dog sweater before - and this was pretty fun.  A friend requested it for her aging dog.
Project Details:
Wurstwarmer Dog Sweater.  Started on December 14th and finished on January 7th.  Not a super long knit.  I didn't like the wrapped stitch pickups that you can see around the chest of the sweater.  If I ever make this again I will use a different technique.  It took 2 whole skeins of Knit Picks Galilelo (262 yards) on size 6 needles.

I liked how this pattern had a section that you measured your dog for.  I hope it fits my friends dog.  I'll post photos if I get any!
