Some finished items

Went on a Veteran's Day field trip to Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, Mass. It's run by the Mass. Audubon Society and it's a working organic farm. They also spin wool and I could not resist buying a couple of skeins pictured below. I was thinking of a hat for DH with the lovely wool. Any suggestions? Moving on....

Knitted this on the ride to and from PA for Thanksgiving! It's a scarf (as yet unblocked) in Manos del Uruguay, colorway 111. It's called "Eclipse" but to me, it looks like a sunset. Half the fun is watching how it knits up and how the colors glow in the sunlight. Will block and attach fringe later. I think I'm keeping this one for myself! Check out the closeup colors in the top picture. Moving right along...

Finished the Harry Potter sweater for C. He loves it and wore it on Thanksgiving Day, but as the day went on (7 hour drive to Pennsylvania), he started removing pieces of his clothing to get more comfortable. I still need to block it anyway. Stats:

Pattern: Weasley Pattern from Alison's knit along
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in Midnight and Pickle (for the trim), 5 balls total
Needles: Size 6 US

Need to knit some Christmas gifts, including a cabled vest for DH, but I'm not sure if I'll get that done in time for Christmas or his February birthday. More on that later. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
