The Year of the Hoodie

So, this is the year of the Rooster according to the Chinese calendar. For me, it’s the year of the hoodie!

Most of my 2017 projects planned for this year involve a hood or hat of some sort that I’ve never made before. I’ve already completed the Maclure bonnet by Norichan that was published in the Winter 2016 Stranded Magazine issue. A nice quick knit that I also used some handspun for! Score!

What else have IĀ got planned this year?

Hoodie Shawl Cardigan

Edge Hoodie

Minty Fresh

Granted that’s only 3 more projects, but these three have been in my queue for quite a while and are pieces that I lack in my wardrobe. I have 1 zipper hoodie…and it’s from the kids department from Target. I have many beanies, but none that are shaped like Minty Fresh. The three knit sweaters currently in rotation will probably last me another year or two before completely falling apart. So hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I will have an awesome set of hooded items come next fall. =)
