I shall overcome!
A successful FO! Finally. The loopy pillow is off the needles (and look! It's square this time!). Of course it's not exactly a pillow yet, so not technically finished but nonetheless... I picked up some remnant fabric today to create the back of the pillow (I'll be damned if I'm knitting a matching back!). I do plan on making a pair of these, so I will have to knit another one eventually. Just not for a while. Enough with the loops!
The disastrously tiny/puckered beret? Frogged and awaiting a second go around:
(This tiki dude's face fairly accurately mimics what mine looked like upon finishing the hat)
I'm going to try a swatch tonight for the Phildar swing jacket too (I added another post to the knitalong page.) Here's hoping I'm on a winning streak!
