Knit Fit for a Nephew

Over the past year or so, the Pilgrim has created a number of knits for the Long-Suffering Other's adorable neice, the eight-year-old Princess Mary. Mary is more precisely a Pink Princess. Absolutely anything is fine by her...as long as it's pink. And so, she has been the happy recipient of an exceedingly soft and fuzzy pink scarf with fringe, and a lovely pink, green and white striped cotton tank dress knit entirely in stockinette with pink garter stitch trim - very Lilly Pulitzer. What joy to create little things for such an adorable little one!

But, one doesn't want to neglect her older brother, the 13-year-old Matthew, now does one? It's just not so easy, though, to find a project or pattern that feels a right fit for a young, newly teen boy.

Enter the new book, Son of Stitch 'N Bitch. How pleased was I to find the knit hoodie featured on the far-left side of the cover. Perfectly suited, it seems, for an active 13-year-old, don't you agree?

Although the Pilgrim certainly approves of the brown version in the book, for Matthew I have chosen a largely gray (surprise) and blue scheme. And despite the fact that my gauge was wrong and I had to rip it out once and start anew, so far I think it's coming out rather well.
