2 Sleeves!


I got a lot of knitting done this weekend and not only did I get both sleeves of my Basic Chic Hoodie done, but I got all the ends woven in and sewed up the seams! (I knit them flat instead of in the round because I thought that would work better with all the stripes.) As you can see in the picture above, I've started the hood now. This sweater is really zipping right along (assuming I read the directions). I think it would be a good sweater for a beginner to knit. The pattern is well written and while it's a bit more involved than the standard beginner sweater (oversized, drop shouldered, shapeless blob), if you follow the directions and trust the pattern, you'll have a nice sweater that you'll actually want to wear. The pattern comes in a pretty big size range and the nice thing about hoodies is the hood draws your eye upward on the back, distracting from whatever junk you have in the trunk (and I don't care how small or big you are, we all have issues with that area). I hope to get this finished this week and I don't think that's going to be too much of a stretch. According to the Farmer's Almanac, we are supposed to have a REALLY cold winter this year and they're right 85% of the time - good thing I spent all summer knitting cardigans!

Your cardigan is looking so beautiful! I hope the almanac is right about the cold weather...I'm sick to death of the heat! And I have a few sweaters either done or nearly done that I'm anxious for people to wear.

I LOVE those stripes! Very cool. Or maybe I should say that you'll be very warm this winter. :-)

Gorgeous sweater!!!!

I've been wondering what kind of winter we'll be getting... the geese and other birds that spend the winter in Africa flew south around Aug. 15th instead of the end of September as is normal for them...
I can do with a cold winter :) I like them :) :)
