A Hat, and a Start

I wanted an easy project to take with me while we were on vacation.  The Sockhead hat fit the bill very well.
It's a nice, easy project.  I like the way it looks, but not on me.  It will have to find another home.

The last time I knit the Collar a sweater, it ended in disaster.  (It felted, and I cried.  The Collar might have too, but he never told me.)
So, I'm knitting him a sweater.  This one is a heavily patterned sweater.  I'm working on the back.  I do like the way it's going so far.  It's nice to have something where you can see it change.  Miles of stockinette (such as the hat above) bore me to tears.  Too bad that I like the way stockinette looks in sweaters and hats!

I've also started another sweater for me (red, of course), and I've got a pair of socks.  There is a pair I'm going to rip (again!), but there is one pair that is chugging along quite nicely.
