Cabled Hoodie

fiberguy's picture

It's hard to believe I have been on this site for almost 2 years and I have not posted until today. This is the hoodie that I'm knitting for my partner Greg. It is the Iain. I'm not that far but thought I would share. This will get me moving on it because now you know!

Hope you all are having a nice holiday season!

Very nice design. Good to hear the Cascade Eco - Wool is nice to work with. I may break my vow to use only stash and knit a cardigan in it for myself. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
