The last thing I knit and finished was those legwarmers for my yoga teacher in February. (The knit tie was knitting up way too thick to actually tie in a knot, so that’s been shelved.) I just realized this lack of knitting may be contributing to feeling like I need hippie affirmations all the time.
But what to knit? Sure, I could finish the two sweaters for me lying around, but I think I need a new project. And I think Skyler needs a little hooded sweater for the fall.
Construction-wise, I think this pattern (“Duck Soup“) wins (knit in one piece, plus the cuffs and hood edges can be rolled back to accommodate him growing):
But I love the Christopher-Robin-ness of “Roo” (and the real toggle closures, vs. knitted ones):
So planning has begun. I just hope this kid doesn’t grow too fast between now and the end of the year–look how big he’s getting!
Alan, tell Bubbs he picked the one his auntie would have picked!
And Jodi, I think you’re right. Roo just looks too fussy overall.
Skyler just came up to the iPad and pointed to the first one. I think he wants that one. 🙂
Both patterns look terrific! I wonder if Roo will end up seeming awfully long (I’m guessing it will stretch a bit as it’s worn)? Love the details, though.
