Cold weather

The temperature is dropping here in Cork again, what a good excuse to get my heavy wool jumpers out!  It’s great as a knitter to have a positive side to cold weather.

I’ve been slowly working my way through a cotton hoodie for my oldest son.  I made one for him last Christmas and he has grown so much that it looks like a belly top on him now!  (Maybe it shrank a little in the wash too).  Last time around I just knitted a plain stocking st hoodie with bright colourful stripes.  However this time I had lots of one colour so I decided to add some cabling to add interest.  Now while the plain body flew I am now knitting 12 inches of a hood with cables on the front and it is taking me an eternity.  I really need to sit down for a day or two and just get it done so that I can move on to something else!
