Knitted Hat and Progress on The Birdkeeper

I have another finish for 2014.

I finished up the hat that matches the self-striping scarf I made for Keith.

It is a very basic, easy free pattern, that I found here.

Here is the finished set:

I also made some progress on my bird girl. She is actually finished, but I will be a while longer in the trees!

I always under-estimate how long it takes to stitch a tree, any tree, in any pattern. They always look so easy!

The hat is lovely and looks perfect with the scarf. Love the bird lady too. I dislike stitching trees. With a vengeance. Which is ironic considering I love A&Es and of course they always involve a tree. lol!

Such a lovely hat and scarf. I love the thread colour you used.
I hear you on the tree stitching, lol. I love stitched trees but stitching them is not very enjoyable, there are so many traps and sometimes I have to frog whole branches of the tree. Good luck with yours.
