Year End Finishes

I finished up a few things that haven’t been documented yet. There’ll be another post in Jan about gift finishes as I don’t want to ruin surprises that haven’t been given yet.

First up is this hood I made myself.

I’ve already used it, the one day it was quite cold when we had practice. I didn’t fight that day so I’m still not sure how that will work out but it did cut down on the cold on my ears. Plus this paired with my shawl was great around my neck.

I’m still not sure about the short rows in the back but I suspect I did something wrong and after a wash or two they’ll smooth out.

I also finished up another set of stripy socks.

I always love my stripy socks. These ended up with the heel placed perfectly and I used them for heel placement on the next set.

Lastly I have a hat for the hubby. He wanted a hat he could wear while fighting, for those colder days. So standard acrylic it is!

He’s a very simple guy so it was a super fast knit. Plus I can throw it in the wash after he spends 4 hours sword fighting and it’s soaked. Win!
