Time for an update?

I finished the hoodie a while ago. Since then, I’ve been knitting a hat for a baby. I decided to make a beaded one, similar to the blue one I made for Hjalti a year ago, but with a fancy edge, since it is a baby girl. Since I  had to buy more yarn, you see, I’m trying to use up my stash, I went to the yarn shop (Storkurinn). I ended up buying not one skein, but seven! I was too tempded to buy yarn for a baby, cabled pullower which I saw there while ago and have been thinking about ever since. In order to get the pattern, one has to buy the yarn too. So of course I did;-)

I saw that I always forgot to post the finished hoodie made for my cousin, here it is
white and green lopapeysa for Arna

And Hjalti’s in white and blue shades

Details: Approximately size 98 cm (or 86, not sure). Yarn: icelandic Létt-lopi (lopi light). Needles no. 4.5mm, 3.5 for cuffs. Pattern: A free pattern from Ístex. For this one, I used leftover lopi, I only had to buy one skein of white extra.
