With deadlines behind me, I have picked the hoodie up again. Sadly, the arrival of an early spring, or um summer, means that he’s unlikely to get much wear out of it before fall…but it’s roomy so I’m sure he’ll get to wear it eventually.
As of this writing, I’m 6 rows from finishing the body and expect to be working on the first sleeve tomorrow. The thing I don’t like about raglan sweaters is how long the yoke rows are, but now that I’m ready to work on the sleeves I am glad that about a quarter of them is already knit. 🙂
Have I mentioned how nice it is that the kids like coming to the yarn shop with me? They generally behave well, respect the yarn and play with the shop toys long enough for me to work a few rows of my project. Plus, I get to show them off to my friends. Todd even modeled the hoodie in progress for a few seconds – just long enough for me to get a few oohs and aahs.
Maybe I’ll be able to get a picture of him in it when it is finished. As long as it isn’t 90 degrees when it is done…
