Will you forgive us?
Wildly Staccato Hoodie
Pattern: My Own
Yarn: Cascade 220
Zipper: Mood Fabrics (What is up with M&J Trimming not carrying zippers? I swear I used to be able to buy them there back in the 80's before they were the Mecca they are now.)
Coffee: Latte w/ 1% - Made as a bribe to get him to model so early in the morning.
Started in January, finished on May Day with much harassment/guilt from the recipient. If I didn't love this kid so much I never would have been able to get through the weaving in of those ends.
His sisters have designs on stealing this. Perhaps I should take advantage of the Cascade 220 on sale at Webs and make a few more.
Now, if you haven't already seen it, go have a look at the striped Tomten Nova made for her rock star. I feel a kinship with her over these projects, not just because of all of the ends that we both had to face, but also because Little Sir reminds me so much of my son at that age. Seeing him in those stripes is like a time machine.
Hey Nova, guess what his first comment was when he tried the finished hoodie on?
"Where are the pockets?" They never change. The only difference, the trains are now Metro cards, random guitar picks and a cell phone.
Off to Maryland Sheep and Wool tomorrow. The weather report looks great! I can't wait of meet some of my blog friends.
