I Love Stripes

I worked on this hoodie steadily over the weekend while watching more U.S. Open tennis. The sleeve stitches have been transferred to holders and now I'm just working on the body. I've got to knit about 18 inches total in length. I'm just randomly working the stripe pattern as I go, switching colors whenever I want. So far, so good!

What's Up?

I just returned from vacation in New York, where I was attending the U.S. Open. I also managed to find a little time to shop in SoHo and visit some friends from college. I'm getting ready to swatch for the Basic Chic Hoodie. Apparently, I'm on some crazy hoodie kick recently. I'm using some Cascade 220 Superwash, courtesy of Carolyn. I've got four skeins each of these two shades of blue, which isn't enough for the entire sweater, so I'll be combining them in some random stripe pattern.
