Just in time for summer!

The wool hoodie is done! Of course I finished it just in time for the 80 degree weather. I am so very pleased at how this came out. I did add extra cable repeats in the body because I don’t like short sweaters, and I had to make the sleeves longer, well, because I have long arms. It blocked up beautifully. If you are considering knitting this sweater, please do the biased hem. I cannot imagine how it would have turned out with ribbing. I think it makes the hem lay very flat and nice. I will let the photos speak for themselves.

      Looks like you had fun with the photo shoot. I am sure you will have a time to wear it soon, especially with Michigan weather.
