The sewing is piling up!!

 With the knitting completed...the sewing and finishing is left. I figured out the instructions for the Batman hat which were a little confusing. I had to read it over a few times and think about it. I also asked someone on ravelry, who had also knit the hat , what she did so now I know what to do. For a little hat there is a lot of finishing.. a partial seam in the back... folding down and sewing the ears and finally duplicate stitching the bat on the front.
 After I had finished all the knitting on the Brobee hoodie I needed to get the zipper. I ended up getting a red zipper because the colors were very basic at Joanns fabric. On this project I have to sew in the zipper and sew on the little points and tuck in a couple of ends. 
All of the knitting was finished on my other projects so until I get the chance to work on all the finishing I started my next project with is a little hooded cape for Abby. The pattern is from Loop-d-Loop. I don't know why but I love knitting with really chunky yarn and I love how the stitches look. This project is knit on size 19 needles. So fun!!
You can find all my projects on ravelry.

I love knitting with chunky yarn too! And I love how lace looks in it.

One of my next projects is going to be a scarf knit on Size 35 needles with that new Berroco Link yarn. It should knit up rather quick!

Love the Brobee, I think the red zipper compliments it nicely.

Thank. I was unsure of the zipper but it will have to do. (^_^)
