The Austin Hoodie

It is completed!  I began this on May 1, 2011 and I finished it, bound off and ends woven in on April 1, 2012.  Yes, it took me eleven months, but for the life of me, I can't tell you why it took so long.  It wasn't a difficult knit, but it wasn't one that I could just pick up and put down either.  I always had to read the pattern a little before I restarted and that probably had something to do with it.  I knit it in Elann's Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Claret.  I followed the pattern except for the lower sleeves where I forgot to double check the pattern and just continued them in stockinette and added a hem.  (They were supposed to be in the same rib used at the top of the cardigan.)  I love the way it fits and the yarn feels soft, but there was no one here to get photos, so it's on a hanger that's wider than my shoulders are. It's also seriously overcast here this morning, so getting details on this dark red is next to impossible.  I did get a detail shot of the stitch textures though (the color is more accurate on the full garment shots).
I'm glad to have this all finished, but I'm going to wait a bit before I start another cardigan. DSCN0051

Hoodie looks great. Congrats on finishing this UFO!

Just heard about the tornados in your area - hope you are all OK!

I've been thinking of you. I hope you are OK and the tornado didn't hit where you live. Be careful.
