Little Man's Hoodie

Little Man likes wearing hoodies. He wears one everyday when he goes to daycare. He actually wears the hood. When he saw me looking at the Cabo Hoodie pattern, he asked for one in blue. We headed up to my closet and pulled out the CE stash. His options were Popsical Blue or Candy Blue. When he saw the RED, he quickly claimed it - "I want mine red with a pocket and long-sleeves". Thus began the saga of Little Man's Hoodie.

My boys

The pocket was the first piece knitted up but as you can see I haven't sewn it on yet. Can you tell I have issues with sewing? I started knitting on Pumpkin Girl's hoodie last night while I was watching TV with Little Man when he inquired about his sweater.

Little Man: "Hmm. Mom, Where's my sweater?"
Me: "It's upstairs in our bedroom but I haven't sewn in the pocket."
LM: [goes upstairs] "Where in your room? ... Nevermind I found it. Can I wear it because I'm cold?"
He comes down the back staircase and I just had to take some pictures.

Double thumbs up

Cabo Hoodie
Pattern: Wendy Bernard of Knit and Tonic
Yarn: 4 skeins Lion Cotton-Ease in Cherry Red for size 6
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #7 and #8
(04/06/07 - 04/18/07)

Modifications: I made the neckline bigger by deepening the V. I lengthened the hood using one of his hoodies as a comparison.

Technique Learned: Grafting garter stitches.

Eventually I'll sew the pocket and add a picture of it.
