Finally, a finished knitting project

I started this Spud & Chloe “camp hoodie” a couple years ago. I finished the entire body and was halfway up the hood when I just, well, stopped knitting. I’m not sure what happened, but I just didn’t feel like knitting. That lasted a couple of years. I now seem to have gotten some knitting mojo back. I don’t know how long it will last, but I am hoping it sticks around for a while!

Anyway, I finally managed to finish the hoodie. Unfortunately, I am not all that happy with it. It doesn’t really fit me very well, and I think it looks poorly knit (maybe because it IS poorly knit). Maybe I will like it better after I have thrown it in the wash (and I CAN throw it in the wash because I used KnitPicks Swish that is washable). One good thing is it is really quite warm. I really love KnitPicks Swish. It is super soft and cozy.

    I think it is super cute, and great colors! Just what you need in the winter. A wash will make everything settle nicely, I think. It looks great as it is, but I know the feeling of wanting it to look just right.

    And really nice to see you knitting again. More on rav, please!!

    It looks like your gauge changed a bit when you were doing the color work, but that is conveniently where the waist shaping would be. It will most likely look better after washing, but it does look perfectly lovely in the picture.
