FO: K2P2 hat

I knitted the EXACT SAME HAT as I made in 2012.
Same brand of yarn and same size needles; the only difference is the color of yarn.
This one is going to be an xmas present for my fiance's daughter.
As I'm sure you can tell, I STILL haven't perfected the pom-pom.
 Excuse the fact that I look INSANE in this picture.......
Hopefully the weird pom pom is outdone by the fact that it is a hat which is warm.
But we won't know til December 26th.

Archie's Second Sweater

My poor dog.
Doesn't it just look like he's saying "Mom please don't embarrass me like this!"

It's obviously not done, but hopefully will be soon. I will have to pick up the stitches at the top and knit some more ribbing because I want it to be more turtleneck-y, and then I will knit down for some sleeves to cover a bit of his tremendously long legs.

Pics of the Seamless Saddle Shoulder Sweater

Now that I've completed Randy's sweater, I am working on a sweater for the dog.
Archie's sweater is nearly done. I just have some seaming to do. You know how much everyone dislikes seaming!
Should have pics of the dog in his new sweater soon! His old one fits like a little tiny vest. Poor dog truly outgrew it.

Randy's Sweater

Once the body and sleeves were combined, this sweater began to fly along.

There it is. My very first saddle shoulder sweater. Ends woven in and armpits grafted. If only my model would wake up so he could try it on....

Close up of the shoulders from the front:

And the back:
I really think this design was too much work and I doubt I will make another saddle-shoulder sweater again any time soon. MAYBE with cables up the sleeves and shoulders, then I could see it being worth it. But plain? No point at all, and I'd be better off sticking to Raglan.
I can tell you one thing though, when I tried it on Randy earlier today it was very flattering on him, because of the shoulders being squared off. I really wish he would wake up!
My ravelry page is here.
Lots more progress pics. :)
Happy knitting! Time for me to knit a matching sweater for the dog, now. haha
