two finished objects and one to make

here are the latest fruits of my labour. a february sweater and a pillbox hat with gull pattern.
and the next fruit a fair isle yoke sweater.
the first is made of lilac debbie bliss: cathay. a pricey cotton/viscose/silk blend.
the latter is to be made of alpaca in three brown shades, a pink and a green. it is for my niece and of her own choice.
i have started yesterday but i have to frog because it is too small. i have a big swatch now. so all shall be well.
the rasta tam was given to the person it was made for. it suited him very well and he was a very happy. nothing like homemade gifts.

thank you so much for the info on the tam.. i have been busy with the new baby and haven't had a chance to even think about starting it. well, i have been knitting, of course, but for the babe, not me!
