I know, I know, it’s been far too long since I’ve been on here and posted. And trust me, it’s not for lack of remembering…well that’s not exactly true, I remember in the morning, but then by the time my little man goes down for his first nap (a time that could be well spent updating the blog) I have already completely forgotten that I wanted to put a post up. It’s funny really, I’ve still got so many different projects completed and photographed that could go up, but I simply don’t find the time.
And remember back before little man was born I said that I was planning to make my wedding dress, well…that never happened, because again, I simply didn’t have the time. But that’s ok, I got married anyway, in a dress I ordered online (I’ll show you all one day).
In the meantime, here’s a hoodie I made back in February, and a good thing too. I had knitted so many newborn things that the little man fit into for only a couple of weeks, and this hoodie he wore for quite a few months. I’m even hoping that he might still fit into it in the autumn!
It was from a Debbie Bliss book a friend gave me a few years ago and it’s the first time I knitted one of her patterns, and I actually found it really straight forward and easy. Details can also be found on my Ravelry.
I got the yarn in a sale (to be honest I would refuse to pay normal price for Debbie Bliss yarn, as it’s quite expensive I think), and I was rather pleased with the colour of it.
I’m really rather pleased with how it turned out and I love the little details, like the pockets (not that Luke had any idea back when he was wearing it, what to do with pockets), but they still add that little bit extra! I also love the generous hood as it makes the hoodie so comfortable and cosy.
It just works, don’t you think?
