tweed hoodie

my hoddie is making progress
only the sleeves to go

now i'm thinking about lining it
maybe a dotted jersey lining?


the next 4 days we celebrate a wine festival here

we live in a medieval village and all vaulted cellars
are open, many bands are playing and still more wine is flowing.....hihihi
much work, but also a lot of fun

so i think i won't have much time to post

see you at tuesday

now i have a few pics of the finished
sweater for you!! finished the knitting right before my trip to
egypt, but had to block it and weave in ends

just a simple sweater with this funny
faux buttonband on the back!!
worked from bottom to top
no armholeshaping, just holes for the sleeves
picked up sts for the sleeves and knitted
the sleeves in rounds to end
neckshaping for front and back is the same, so i can wear it
with the buttonband in front

yarn. pure wool ; no label
needles. 4.0mm circulars and dpns
pattern. maybe
