A very quick knit…

Last week I made a CRAZY thick and warm sweater (0-456 Knitted Sweater on Ravelry – creative name! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/0-456-knitted-sweatet)… We ran out of firewood for the year (and the road is really too muddy to get more right now) so we’re just using oil heat, which doesn’t quite keep the home warm… so when I’m really cold, I can don this!IMG_0716

Crazy Warm Hoodie…

After making mittens last week, my littlest one promptly asked for a hooded sweater made from the same yarn. I’ve made many of these over the years, so I played around a little bit with the stitch pattern. You can’t do much with a super bulky variegated yarn like this one, though – most patterns get lost in the mix…

A quick, very warm knit! Perfect for a cold spring…

A little detail of the way the ‘pattern’ (just 2 knit rows, 1 purl row, repeated):

Adding a few pictures now that the littlest is awake…
