Woww.  you've done some fantastic work this winter!  That hat looks like it was intense.  I can only usually take on a project with one band of fair isle at most.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Wow, the Chullo alone would have taken me 2months.

Interested in personal swaps; offering knits for eco baby and mama items.

Awww... Thanks so much!

The chullo did take a long time. For the most part, it was just 2 colors at a time, which was fine. One of the bands I did with 3 colors and I totally regretted it. You can't even tell there's a 3rd color. Tongue

I love the colours in the fairisle hat! Did it take you a long time to do?

Thanks Rachel! It did take a while. I can't remember how long exactly cuz leading up to Christmas I did a lot of knitting, but I'm guessing 30-40 hours.

Your projects are all just beautiful! I especially love the hat and scarf set. They really look like they could have been store bought, or even better! I'm also in awe of that scoodie. You're very talented!

Great fair isle hat, and LOVE the hooded scarf.  Did you use a pattern, or make your own?
