Soldiers and a Yarn Shop

My latest two projects are for a soldier, and my cousin's yarn shop.

The one for a soldier is a helmetliner. One of the girls in the Knitting Help Forum is collecting helmetliners, so I said I would try to make one. I'm right at the deadline now, so I hope I finish in time. If not, I'll just mail it directly to the soldiers.

I'm using Berella Muskoka yarn, in a camouflage color. The only problem with the yarn is that it is not holding the dye very well. Whenever I knit this project, my fingers turn black. :(

Here is how far I've gotten on the helmetliner. It's starting to look like a science project now!

The other project I'm working on is another display model for my cousin's yarn shop "Cottage Yarn". I'm using Universal Yarn Deluxe Chunky 100% Wool yarn in a nice periwinkle blue color. The pattern came from the Cascade Yarn website, called "Childs Alternative Cable Pullover". So far, I've almost finished the back.
