Green Hoodie

in Sweater

I found some yarn at a local craft store that was so cheap, I had to buy every skein they had!  Regularly $4.99 a ball was now just $.97 each.  So what do you do make when you have 11 balls of bright green yarn nd 2 balls of dark purple yarn?

A beautiful hoodie of course!  I’m a sucker for hoodies and love making them.

The yarn is Debbie Stoller’s Alpaca Love, which was great to work with.  I love the Bamboo Ewe yarn she makes and was anxious to try the Alpaca.  It’s a blend of wool and alpaca and super warm. The yarn knit up great and felt a little warmer and slightly thicker then the Bamboo yarn.

The pattern was fun to work and had techniques I had not tried before.  The sides of the piece have deep “slits” on each hip that allows for some breathing room.  I love this.  The neckline was also a fun challenge to create midway up the front panel.

Did I mention I live in Florida and will probably NEVER wear this here?  LOL. I will have this packed and ready for when I visit family in North Carolina for the holidays.

Have you attempted knitting a sweater yet?  If so, share your project, I’d love to see your creation.  If you’ve always wanted to knit a sweater, what things hold you back?  You can do it!  Start looking through pattern books and magazines and pick a simple design and plunge in.  You’ll be so happy when you finish and can grab that sweater on a cold morning!
