this is one warm sweater! its the first time i've knit a hood on a sweater and i love it, i might remove the ears for everyday wear but im not sure :) the pattern was great, really fast and easy.
the crown was probably the hardest part! i went up a needle size because i have a huge melon head and i got exactly the length (before felting) that i was supposed to, and after felting it barely changed length at all! so weird. so i ended up cutting off 3 of the points and it fit like a glove :) and felting by hand is no joke, my arms were burning. hehe
also had a few hiccups with lining up the shoulder seam, but i blame that on my finishing skills.
i can now let the wild rumpus begin!
