First off: hello again! I’m not sure last week was tremendously restful, but at least it was fun. (Perhaps more on that later…)
Now: my gray hoodie. I finished the knitting of it back in February, and wore it twice pre-blocking, but have been very delinquent in performing that last step. But I finally have, and got John to take some photos of it for me this weekend. Hooray!
But I changed quite a lot: the yarn, the gauge, the shaping; I added buttons all down the front, and a huge, cozy hood.
Here are a few details, of the puffed pockets:
the handmade-in-Portland ceramic buttons, whose blue just matches the bits of blue tweed in the yarn:
and the pleating at the back neckline, hood shaping, and one stray un-tucked yarn end:
And the best part: me enjoying a project quite a lot of time in the making.
