Some knitting finishes!

I finished this sweater while we were traveling but I just blocked it yesterday. This is the first sweater I have made in many years. I used to make sweaters for the boys when they were little. The only other time I made a sweater for me was in 1975! 
The hems and the neckline roll. This fits but I'd like it to be longer. I'd also like the sleeves to be shorter. So I will take care of that on the sweater I am knitting now.

I made this headband/ear warmer while we were traveling. The yarn is variegated - you can see the light to dark shading in the pictures.
It is now finished with a button.
It doesn't really go with my winter coat - what was I thinking?!

So yesterday I bought some 'white' yarn and made the same pattern last night. I love the lacy design.
I used the same button that the brown one has - I really wanted to get this done - the snow is coming!
I don't think you can see the buttonhole but there is one at the opposite end as the button.


  1. Beautiful! You got that headband done in one evening? I have some wool yarn for a sweater for me...... but then I moved to a warm climate. Maybe I'll have to make it for my Mom instead.

  2. Such beautiful work. I envy your being able to knit. I'd like to have some kind of needlework project to take when we travel.

    It sounds like you all will get quite a snow today. None hear ... too bad you can't send some our way, since you'll have plenty. ;-)

  3. Love those!! I have made several pair of fingerless mitts....very relaxing! Christmas Blessings!
