FO Friday - 5/5/2017

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!


Pattern: Gramps by Tin Can Knits.
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Gray and Really Red. 
Comments: I think this pattern is so cute and so well written. It was worth the dollars. I decided to leave off the pockets and the elbow patches because I think the pups should take center stage. This project fulfills the button/buttonhole assignment for Loopy Academy.


I love the buttons.


And the grumpy grandpa-ish shawl collar is pretty cute too.


Pattern:  Basic Norwegian Star Hat by Cara Jo Miller
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Army Green and Daffodil
Comments: Yes, this hat is huge! I rolled the ribbing over twice!


There's a 250-yd minimum requirement for Loopy Academy projects; so, I knitted 40 rows of ribbing at the beginning. It did the trick - I used up plenty of yarn!


I don't think I did too bad of a job with the fair isle.

MK out.
