Share-A-Craft: Bubblegum Hoodie

Share-A-Craft is just as much fun as a tilt-a-whirl, but with less stomach upset and possible vomiting. Every Monday, I post a project of any type that I've recently or not so recently done. If you want to share right back, I'd love to see what you've been making.

When I made this project, I thought I was making a hoodie dress. I was knitting at my sister's house for craft night, so I didn't have Aubrey in the vicinity. I was also making up the pattern as I went along. When I thought it was long enough, I started making the sleeves and that kind of thing. Aubrey is taller than I thought. She's entirely too old. So, this is more like a long shirt, but I think it turned out pretty cute anyway.I love it layered over a shirt for winter weather, and it's a good transitional piece for spring, whenever she decides to show her face. Because I'm pretty sick of winter and winter colds and winter snow and winter frost and winter sidewalks and winter mud. It's finally into March, so maybe in a few more weeks we can ditch the heavy coats.

It's made from cheapy, super-bulky yarn. I would love to try this again in a nicer yarn, and make a hood a bit bigger too, but overall, I think it's pretty darn cute.So is Aubriana; therefore, I must put up way more pictures than is really needed for this type of project. It's the law. The law of the cuteness.
