Owlet and hat

As mentioned last visit I ordered some Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury to knit Owlet jumper for my about to be two year old nephew. The pattern is lovely, well written and pleasing. I loved knitting with the Bendigo wool, it's soft but not denatured and smooth and lovely. The colour in real life was even better than on the internet. I 400 grams, so I also knit the matching hat. I'm a little worried about the sizing, since here it is on my head. I do have quite a small head though.

I really didn't make any changes from the pattern although I haven't put buttons on for the eyes. I don't think I will, partly because Leon reckons it's girly and partly because I really don't feel like sewing on dozens of buttons. It was such a fast, pretty, satisfying knit. I hope to be able to get some action photos after they have been gifted. Which will be at a children's birthday party next Sunday. And since the party is at ten am I fear we will have to attend sober, although I'm not against the idea of going straight to the pub afterwards.
