These are for my baby grandson for Christmas. His dad is a big Cubs fan so they are CUBS colors. They won't fit for awhile, but I was winging which size of the pattern to use as it was kind of a vague pattern. They were a quick knit up and felt. I used Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Red and Winter night and it was leftovers from his dad's scarf and hat so it cost me nothing except the hot water for the felting.
On another note, my dd and sil took my husband and I out to lunch for our birthday's and they gave me the Knitpicks Options set. I was so excited when I saw it I squealed and everybody turned around and looked at the nutty woman!!
