FO: Twinkle Hoodie

Voila! C'est un "hoodie."



Took me long enough to finish this darn thing. Okay, well part of that had to do with lack of time and lack of buttons. Finding large brown buttons in Washington, DC is impossible. Finding them online is nearly impossible. Especially because I'm a completely A-type and could not compromise. This hoodie could've gone unfinished for YEARS just so I could find the right buttons. Thankfully, that didn't happen.



Pattern: Twinkle Hoodie
Yarn: Classic Elite Alaska (50% wool, 50% alpaca)

Mods: I knit the medium sleeves with the large body. It turned out much larger than I had initially wanted. I actually enjoy that it's big. I won't wear it out much but it's just what I wanted to curling up on the sofa on a cold day. It's really warm and soft and lovely. Overall, a success. I might knit myself another, smaller version in a bright color.
