Deep Winter Hoodie

It’s finally cool enough to take pictures of a knit I’ve finished. Summer is not inductive to sweaters but that seems that is all I can manage to knit these days.

I’ve had a lot of Malabrigo in this colorway (Vaa) for a while. It was going to be a different sweater but it didn’t work out as planned.  This I think is a fabulously cosy alternate.

I made a close fitting hood that would really keep out any wind or snow or rain (since we are moving to Washington in a few weeks).  I added a high collar for extra warmth.  The slipped stitch I used on the yoke added extra thickness and creates a fabulous texture.

I couldn’t be happier with this sweater and I couldn’t be happier to have it done either! 🙂

In other news I’m trying to find my motivation to finish packing. I tell ya, it’s hard!  Tank isn’t a super help either since he’s usually playing with whatever I’m trying to pack, chasing a cat, or whining because I’ve put him in his crate. I tell ya, I don’t know how people with small children move. I believe they look down on you when you put your kid in a crate, no matter how handy it might be. 🙂

  1. I know how you feel. We had done the same. I hate packing. I don’t even want to think about unpacking it all in a few weeks!!! Thank god for crates! We have two whiny babies under foot!

  2. LOVE the greenyness of your new hoodie. That’ll be a good layer when you get HOME.

    The Ch. Isl. shawl is cool too… are these both your patterns?

    See ya at anacapa tomorrow? I’m going to try to make it.
