Lookin' Good in the Hood

La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaah!

I've got a new hoodie!  After knitting for what seemed like an eternity, my Chocolate Rogue Hoodie is finally finished!  Perhaps it seemed to take so long because of other knitting interruptions; namely the Little Vesta for Jaycee and the Gattsbaby Jacket for Hunter.

Looking back at my Ravelry project page, I note that I cast on my Chocolate Rogue on 6 February, 2010.  Then from 4 -23 March I put the hoodie aside while I worked on my other two projects.  So I guess it really only took 5 weeks to knit.  Hmm.....just seemed so much longer.....

Anyway, here are some photos of my finished hoodie:

It's Been a While

Sometimes when I blink, I swear that more than a moment passes.  Seems like the last six weeks have been nothing more than a wrinkle in time.

Not that I haven't been busy - it's the opposite actually.
  • I made it through the Olympics - knitting furiously, but not finishing my Rogue Hoodie.
  • I wrote and desktop published a 56 page colour catalogue for our business.
  • I built a new website for the business.
  • I bought new software for the business sales computer and entered 700 inventory items (each with 15 fields!).
  • I interviewed 20 job applicants and selected two additional staff to the four I already have.
  • I ordered a whole load of stock for the business.
  • I had a birthday - lovely day.
  • I knit my niece a vest.
  • I knit a baby jacket for my NIL's (niece in law) baby shower.
  • And I wrote and desktop published a spring newsletter.
So here are some photos of my knitting:

Little Vesta for Jaycee Mae

Gattsbaby Sweater

P.S.  Since the photo I fixed the alignment problem on the baby jacket.
