Hat and gloves

And finally, I have got around to get some pictures of my long-finished objects: the Cherry Pie Fetchings and the Peasant Cap.
I have been using them for a while, and very successfully. Well, mostly. I have now learned that soy stretches. No, more than that. More. My fetchings have therefore stretched out a little bit, especially around the cables of the palm. I might knit them again next winter (I actually bought some extra soy because it's pretty, and so I can reknit them), but for now they are working rather well.
The Peasant cap took a bit longer to get to grips with, and much trying it on and resewing the back, but now I really like it. It slouches back and covers my ponytail, especially when my hair is wet, which was its purpose. I was under the impression a normal hat would make me look ugly, but this is a lot more airy and differently shaped, so it suits me fairly well.

And now, without further ado, the pictures!
