Why didn't I see it!
This is Emma's Hoodie. We went into my stash (yeah, stashbusting!*) and she picked the yarn (Araucania Nature Cotton) and we got together on the pattern. A striped hoodie with a kangaroo pocket was Emma's contribution. That it would be knit from the top down, working out the details as I we went along was mine. And the daisy was my idea (there'll be some on the hood too). I rather liked this pattern, but I was vetoed.
Don't see it yet? Look really closely.
Things were going well until I got to the pocket. The intarsia that I haven't done since this sweater was a bit of a challenge and I needed to start it again to get it right. I also think the pocket should be a bit wider, but I wasn't ripping it back for that.
The other problem, that I will have to rip back for. I didn't centre the damned pocket. Actually I did, but I forgot that I'm knitting from the top down, not the bottom up. So while it would have been centred had I started from the bottom, it doesn't work when you consider the decreases/increases (depending on your perspective).
And here I was thinking I had nothing to blog about.
*I was excited about the idea of taking a chunk out of my stash until I did a little assessing and realized that unless I knit a cozy for the CN Tower, I ain't making a dent in anything. Here that Christo and Jeanne-Claude?
