I love the hat and the sweater too. I am glad that DH got the hat, you know he has been so jealous of that jacket you've been knitting.
I had a similar DH seater experience. The second thing I ever knit was a sweater for him and it took me months and months. He wore it once and messed up the high collar with his scruffy neck and chin (note to all knitters, no high collars for scruffy men) so I tried to "fix" it and it didn't look very nice. He maybe wore it once more but he had to admit that he just doesn't wear sweaters so I think it is in a pile in the garage with spiders probably living in it. So no more sweaters for my DH either. LOL
