I asked for Vogue Knitting for Christmas and loved a pattern that showed up in the very first issue I received. I like to make complicated things, but I tend to wear simple garments in mostly solid colors. I like it when they are a little different from what you see everyday. While not something I would love making, this hoodie was definitely something I would love wearing. It knit up pretty quickly on No 8 needles. I love the end product. This is probably going to be my new favorite garment this fall.
As mentioned in my previous post, I have a lot of friends who have had babies lately. Next up: the Halas. The Halas have an awesome adoption story that I would not do justice. Check out the story on their blog. I simply made a hat for their beautiful baby girl, Evie.
