Christmas knitting
Hats and gloves for the grandsons. I actually remade the gold and purple one because I thought the 4 year old would want something like his cousin so I modified it a bit. The other one is a short version of a stocking cap. I knew he was too cool for the whole thing, but thought he might like an extended version of "Waldo's" hat with a tassel instead of pompom. The plum and silk are Bernat Satin and the daffodil is knitpicks wool of the andes.

Those are some cool hats and mittens! I think it was a great idea to make them similar but not the same. Thanks for posting.

Those are beautiful. Such lovely, straight knit stitches!

I hope they'll wear them till they fall apart (or outgrow them, whichever comes first).

This is something we grandmothers always have to consider... the coolness factor. Ignore at your peril.
