Tag Archives: first day of spring

A finished sweater, just in time for spring?

We returned home this week to sleet, snow, and freezing rain, but at least I finished this hoodie (in Cascade Superwash Paints) to keep my son warm.  I’m so happy this improvised sweater turned out! I used this henley pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple, slightly changed the neckline to include a single button loop, replaced the ribbed cuffs with seed stitch and added a hood.

My son frolicked around in all that icky snow, but I’m definitely ready for the spring promised by the calender today.  I hope the first day of spring finds you enjoying crocuses rather than slush!

Happy Spring!
