Weekend FOs: the Andre, the Christian

Andre wanted to camo hat. I managed to get hold of some Red Heart in camo, which was the absolute perfect colour, but ergh, what horrible yarn. It doesn't actually feel like fibre - it feels more like knitting with some kind of roughened plastic twine. Honestly, you knit with whatever you like, but I am not knitting with this again. All acrylics are not made the same!

It is perfect, though. Took me three attempts to get the size right, but very please with the finished result.

I also made what will hopefully be the last Lumio hat, out of greens scraps I had and begged off Kat at knitting group. Christian requested "a multicoloured beanie" which didn't give me a lot to go on. I am quite pleased with how this one turned out, especially the two tone bobble, which you can;'t see very well here but which looks like the earth. 

Crumbs, I look tired. Roll on the Christmas holidays.
