I have a confession...

... I want to start yet another jumper...

*takes cover to avoid rotten eggs*  

The other day I was reading Savannahchik's blog and she posted that she is joining Plum Dandi's new Sweater KAL on ravelry. I sort of decided that I don't have the time right now for another KAL, but  had a look at the patterns  anyway, and they looked so nice! 

Just look at these:

This is Briquette. I really fancy knitting a hoodie, but the yarn the pattern asks for is DK and I really DON'T fancy another long DK knit right now (after all, I've barely started The Black One, aka the Acer Cardigan, which is likely going to take me ages anyway.

That said, a hoodie would be nice, no?

Alternatively of course there is Ease or even Eased, the bulky version of the pattern:

But they both don't have a hood... Can a drawstring collar be made into a hood? Is that difficult to do? I've never knitted a hoodie before, so the construction isn't entirely clear to me... 

On ther other hand, I have some lovely soft and snuggly Rowan Calmer that is just begging to become a hoodie, so perhaps I should go with Briquette after all? 

Clearly what I really ought to do is get on with all the work that I'm supposed to get on with today rather than fret about future WIPs to add to my existing WIPs! 

Over and out. 


  1. Decisions, decisions...that is half the fun of crafting.

  2. Do wha cha like. That's a cute design.
