I just finished my first sweater.
I learned a few things, like don't follow a pattern that says to seam the collar.

The hat is wool and warm.

Thanks everyone.

I wish I had started knitting earlier. Now I have a very warm hat that isn't camo or blaze and cold weather is almost over.

Awesome! I'm still working on my first sweater. I hope that it comes out just as awesome as yours! Great job!
I don't know if I'd go that far. :)
The collar seam is pretty bad inside. I hope yours comes out better.

But being blaze orange I'll be surprised if it gets worn more than once before the great niece out grows it. Maybe the husband will be allowed to put it on her during hunting season or maybe they'll dress her up as a hunter for Halloween (I plan on making a matching hat).

Both the sweater and the hat look really good! I like the way the sweater has garter stitch "stripes"-cool idea!

Nice hat and sweater. I love orange, the sweater is great. Kids should wear bright colors.

Kids should wear bright colors.

LOL,
My niece had a different view on that. It went something like, "Uncle Mike! My little girl shops, she doesn't hunt!"
She's afraid to let her husband see it. Luckily unless he's still deployed he will be coming up with her this summer.

I promised her something pinkish but I'm mad at that yarn at the moment.

BTW, I had a lady (who serves as my mother) tell me the hat was "pretty" :tap:

It's black and blue, how much more masculine can you get than a bruise? :)
