FO: Hoodie – Blogtoberfest: Day Eleven

I’ve managed to finish the hoodie I was knitting for myself. I started it back in May and took a bit of a break with it during the Summer. Mainly because the yarn I was using, Drops Eskimo, is really warm and thick and it just didn’t feel right to be knitting with it in weather that was in the twenties. The pattern is a Garnstudio pattern that I had found when I was waiting for my little man to arrive in February.

It’s a really easy to follow pattern that is knitted on circular needles up until it’s split for the arms and the front band. Knitting with Drops Eskimo is quite nice as it’s quite a thick yarn and it practically flies off the needles (when I decided to finally focus on it).

When I started knitting it I decided to go for a large size as I think it’s quite nice to be comfortable in this kind of sweater. I was a little bit worried about the sleeves being too short when I was knitting them (even though I knitted a large), but they turned out to be┬ájust the right length.

My best friend was still here on Monday so we did a photoshoot of me wearing the hoodie, so prepare yourselves. Doesn’t it look good? I do think the hood looks a little bit like a pixie or gnome, maybe I should block it after all?

A New Project: Something for Myself

I’m thinking about making something for myself at some point soon and can’t make up my mind as to which project I should start. They’re all patterns from Garnstudio, there’s this one:

I really like the look of it and think it’ll suit me quite well. I’m also trying to think about what colour I could use, I really like these:

104fb 107fb 106fb

Or I’m thinking of this hooded jumper:

I’m thinking these colour options:

60pa 37pa 07pa

Or then there’s this hooded jumper:

Colour choices are the following:

08es 25es 49mes

I think I will make all of them at some point, but I just have to decide which one to start with initially.
