Yeah I did actually finish that:
And wore it:
A lot. Pictures were taken 2 weeks before our daughter was born, btw.
I basically lived in that sweater towards the end of my pregnancy. It was the only thing that kept me warm without overheating me and starting the sweating OMG the sweating seriously why is it so hot in here isn’t it supposed to be winter?!
Have I mentioned that I’m happy I’m not pregnant anymore?
Anyways! I’m thinking that there are 3 reasons I was able to crank that sweater out and actually finish it:
1.) it was out of bulky yarn (Lamb’s Pride Bulky to be exact)
2.) the Cleveland Knits West group was doing a knit along (Must knit faster to keep up!)
3.) it was seamless so it never sat in my knitting basket for months just waiting for me to sew it together (shut up. Trellis. She’s not big enough to wear you yet anyways.)
So when they posted that they were doing another knit along for this:
Heather Hoodie from the fall 2009 Knit Scene
I just couldn’t resist.
I’m using Eco Wool which is fabulously sheepy:
And I think the gray/brown color I picked will go with just about everything and anything.
I reworked the ribbing b/c for whatever reason at the size I’m knitting the cables didn’t flow perfectly out of the ribbing. And that will NOT do. I like things to line up perfectly:
Also now that I’m not working as an architect anymore knitting is the only place to get my OCD on.
But other than that so far so good. It seems to be the perfect fall knit. Yay for bulky yarn!
