Anna's Hoodie

I've rarely been so satisfied with my knitting work (with the exception of socks) than I have been with these last two sweaters. No qualifications about it, there are no little mistakes to worry about folks eyeballing or anything---just fun sweaters that knit well according to directions, a few little customizations now that I've some experience and even my finishing work doesn't embarass me (much). Look at Anna:

So what if the hood looks dorky? She just likes to have it flopping about on her back as she scoots along.

I'm so pleased I set to work immediately on Lindsay's but as usual, I have under-purchased yarn and having knit through the first skein, I'm waiting for the re-up. But I have the entire back finished so I'm flying. I hope the momentum continues through this one and Haley's. I'd love to see them all wearing theirs' this winter.

I hate when I run out of yarn durning a project. Once, they discontinued my yarn before I finished! (guess I took a little too long) It was so sad. It is still my favorite yarn, but no longer exists. Unless you know a place where discontinued yarns are sold?

Love the pink hoodie!!! And what a beautiful model!

I can't imagine we wouldn't be able to find it somewhere. Why don't you send me the details and I'll check it out! Do you know how much you need to finish your project? Do you have the ball/skein band with lot number, etc?
