FO: Belfast Hoodie

Belfast Hoodie

From the first moment I saw this sweater I knew it had to be mine.It's a wonder what they put in those photos over at Quince & Co. because they truly have me with every single one!

Belfast Hoodie

Pattern: Belfast Hoodie By Carrie Bostick Hoge
Yarn: Quince & Co. Lark, Chantrelle, 12 balls
Needles: US 9 & US 8 needles 
Raveled 

Not much I can say about this other than I Love It. Carrie truly has a great eye for design. I made no modifications to the pattern – not even when it came to picking up for the pockets. I like em' as I see 'em! Plus, as you would expect, the pattern was well written. Clear directions and a great sweater schematic!

As for the yarn, it's soft, squshy and blossmed just a bit after blocking. My rule of thumb with any sweater I make is that I like to be a wee bit tighter on my gauge – maybe about a 1/4 stitch. The stitches will grow.

All in all – LOVE.

I wonder what sweater will captivate me next!

What's tickling your fancy these days?

Beauty of Nature

Look Up.

I went to Muir Woods for the first time this week. I was in sheer awe of the beauty and height of the trees we saw. It is humbling to know how long these trees have been in existence. 

I don't have links this weekend BUT Belfast Hoodie is blocking and I hope to show you all soon. 

OK, I got just one link: Gotta love The Sartoralist!
