Pumpkin Girl's Hoodie

As soon as Pumpkin Girl saw progress on Little Man's Hoodie (aka Cabo Hoodie), she requested one in blue. I needed to stay on top of this to keep boredom at bay. Tsk. Tsk. I still haven't sewn the pocket on Little Man's hoodie but he's wore it to school already. Yay!


Both knits were similar yet different. One wanted long-sleeves, the other short. I used the same yarn (stash Cotton-Ease) but different colors. Somehow, the Popsical Blue was easier on the hands (but still not as sproingy as the Orangeade) than the Cherry Red. One was size 6 and the other was size 12 and yet I used the same amount of yarn for each.


Cabo Hoodie
Pattern: Wendy Bernard of Knit and Tonic
Yarn: 4 skeins Lion Cotton-Ease in Popsical Blue for size 12
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #7 and #8
(04/20/07 - 04/30/07)

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

And at the very last minute, Nicks decides to be part of the shoot.
