I love that you have a form that can be used to help you size!  It is looking fabulous!

Thanks so much! The form is just a decoration one, but it does help me get an idea. Amazon has a Singer dress form on sale for $98 that I am oh-so tempted to buy for my sweater making, lol!

My gosh that is gorgeous.

This might look like a finished hat, but i'm not sure if it is.

Right here, it might look a little cloche-ish, but it's actually a nice, big, comfy, bit slouchy thing.
And i'm thinking about adding a pompom on top. If it wasn't so baggy, i wouldn't, but since it is, i think that would be a fun, cool weather touch. What do you ladies think?

What about a big tassel instead of a pompom? It's such a charming hat, not ski toque-ish at all!

What an adorable hat! A pom pom isn't something I normally go for, so I would vote for leaving it as is Smiley

I don't usually go for pompoms, either. Just, when i see slouchy winter hats, it seems like they always have pompoms, and i thought one might be cute. But everybody I've asked has said no, so i guess not. Haha.

I am so eager to finish this sweater and to enjoy wearing it on chilly fall days! I can almost smell the leaves... but maybe that's just the sheepy smell of the wool (I love this organic wool!!!), lol.

Here's where the body is actually at now (just took new pictures today) I'm on the home stretch! Almost finished with the second sleeve, and will be knitting up the hood before I know it Smiley



Oh... and if you can't tell... I did splurge and buy myself the dress form that was on sale, lol!
