New things, new Merino yarn from Drops

Things haven't been great.
I've visited the dentist again.
I've been ill after a vaccination.
The oldest son probably has scarlet fever and when I've had a few minutes over I've spent them on Chistmasgifts.
But I have a few thing to show you:

Youngest son's new hat. He went with me to the yarnshop and picked the colours himself.

Pattern: k3 p2 rib all the way up. Quick decrease.
Yarn: Lima from Hjertegarn 100% wool
Needles: 3,5 mm

Next up the gigantic beret:

Pattern: my own improvisation with a terrible result. Much too big. Will be frogged.
Yarn: Drop's new Merino (at the moment it's only in black or white but with more colours to come).
Needles: 3,5 mm

I really liked this yarn. I started at least five different projects and frogged them until I knitted this hidious thing. It will be frogged as well. I thing I will knit a Kaari instead. Or another Leaf T-shirt.

And finally Buttony:

Pattern: Buttony by Oh my Stars
Yarn: Kampes 2-ply wool yarn
Needles: 4,5 mm

I think I was a bit too optimistic when I decided that the circumference for the arms was enough and put them on scrap yarn. If it doesn't fit me I hope there is someone else interested in this raglan sweater...
