Jump For Joy Hoodie, free pattern!

January 11, 2017



Hello friends. So far I've been loving January and especially enjoying getting back into a nice routine by eating quite a bit healthier than we did in December.  It sure feels good.  Even though the tree has been gone for a week, not until the Christmas cookies and candy are gone do I feel like the holidays are officially over. Because of that, the holidays still linger as does the candy and I don't know what to do with it except to eat it.  My thrifty side won't allow me to throw it out even though my practical side is telling me to stop with the sugar. My January Everest.

We've had tons of rain so there's been time to knit, which I would do even if the weather was fine, but the rain doubles it. January is rose pruning time in California and we are supposed to have less rain for the next few days.  My plan is to prune every day for an hour or so, and then hope for rain so I'll have to go in and knit.  And here's what I've been knitting:

(simple, easy and free!)

(which includes my modifications, please read them before you make this sweater)

(it's 100% wool and machine washable and on sale!)

I wouldn't hesitate to use the yarn or the pattern again.  Both are winners.

Everyone loves my baby hangers.  I found them here.

    1. Thank you Chloe. Blanket stitch is such an easy way to add interest, but I rarely even think of it!

  2. Kristin,

    Happy New Year. The hoodie is so cute with your embellishments. Enjoy the rain. We're having it here in northeast Ohio with temperatures in the 50's. I appreciate a break from the fridid temps. Knitting works in any clime.

    1. Thank you. We are in the 30s in the evening and we are just frozen! I am a CA girl through and through. As far as knitting in any clime, if I waited for cold weather, I'd rarely knit, so yes, I agree with you!
