Under the Hoodie
Voila! Finished her yesterday. As I wasn't quite up to a big day after my hard week, I sat at home, seamed her up, and watched a bazillion episodes of America's Next Top Model on VH1.
In all her sweater-y goodness:
And the back:
This was my Knitting Olympics project, and I did actually finish all of the knitting during the Olympics. I didn't complete the finishing though until yesterday.
Under the Hoodie from SnB
Yarn: The blue-purple is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Hyacinth, the light lavendar stripe is Lambs Pride Worsted, and the Mauve is Cascade 220 in Eggplant.
Needles: Size 8 24" Addi's for most, size 7 Denises for the ribbing.
I used 6.5 out of the 7 balls of the Wool of the Andes, 2.33 out of 3 balls of the Cascade, and a small portion of the single ball of the LP (12 rows total of it).
Pattern is easy to follow, nothing tricky, and I really love the finished result, this is one sweater I'll be wearing a lot! I already wore it last night, and will probably wear it today too.
I like all 3 of these worsted weight wools too. The WooA knit up to gauge on my first swatch, the Cascade is slightly thicker, but not enough to throw off my gauge, and the LP is definitely thicker. If I was knitting more than three rows at a time with it I would have swatched it and changed needle sizes I think.
I did a steam block, and it worked nicely!
And, with cat:
Went to a pig roast last night. Good eats. If you ever get the chance, go to one!
