Sorry, what?!

Sorry, what day is it?  January 21st?!  I think I almost had a heart attack today when I realized how long it's been since I've blogged.  Man, time really does fly when you're having fun.  On that note, I went skating with the kids today (for the first time in about ten years) and did one of those awesome moves when your skates fly out from under you over and over and you look like a cartoon character.  You know the move I mean?  Yep, that was me today.  Luckily I caught myself and was able to recover without losing ALL of my dignity.  hehe.

I've been working on a few things over that last month; nothing major, but things that have made me happy, like this little hoodie.


I made it from a stretch knit that I picked up last summer...I almost forgot I had it until I went rummaging through my 'apparel material' bin.  The pattern is Kwik Sew #908 that I found at my local thrift shop.  I've come across a few cute vintage patterns there and am happy with the way this one turned out!




I love this hood!

I made a few changes to the hoodie - The bottom casing wasn't working out so I made it a bit sturdier by adding quilting-weight cotton to the back...it's not perfect, but it's definitely going to hold up to wear better than the original would have.

I've only made a couple of things out of knits, so this was a perfect pattern to jump back into it with - the pieces were simple and instructions clear.  I even managed to line up some stripes!  :)
