Wicked Buttony Edie- FO

Taking a cue from hybrid cars, I decided to knit a hybrid sweater!

note the Take Back the Night pin :)

A hybrid knit of Wicked, Buttony Sweater, and Edie, using US 7 needles and 8.5 skeins of Noro Cash Iroha (yay for ebay yarn!). Overall, this is a pretty okay sweater. It looks way better closed than open, and its kind of a floppy sweater, so I moved the buttons in a little bit after I took these pictures, as there were gaps that were showing.

And, for fun, here is a hat!

Another Zeebee, this one knit on US 10 needles with a ball and a half of Noro Silk Garden Chunky (wow, this is a Noro-y post, I guess). I cast on 30 sts, wrapped 8 stitches (7 plus the Crown Stitch), and it fits nicely except that it could have been a stitch or two longer.

Ciao, babies!
