A sweater finds a home

The sweater also found an amazing photographer:

The hood is a tad bigger then I thought it was...

But it fits her perfectly, and she loves it. So I'm very happy.

Next project!!!

A Fledgling Hoodie gets a DIY Hood

Sorry about the bad image:

I'm very much winging this hoodie. This is the Howl and Cowl from Stitch n'Bitch, and my sister thought she'd like a hoodie. I have no idea how to make a hoodie.

I basically knitted to the center of the back of the head, and starting doing short rows with a double increase around the back most stitch. I hate hoodies that fit like socks, so I wanted to make sure it was fairly roomy. Short rows would bring the hoodie around the head so it looked nice.

It's actually looking alright, and I'll post an updated picture as soon as I'm able to take one.
