Under the Hoodie

My next project is going to be 'Under the Hoodie' from Stitch n Bitch I have waited a long time for John Lewis to start stocking their winter yarns as I have [had!] a voucher from my work colleague for my birthday just waiting to spend.

Well I popped into JL last week for some electronic scales for my cupcakes - after picking myself up from the floor after reading the price I thought I'd amble up to the yarn section.

I believe I may have lost my senses and my mind a bit - I saw some sparkly Rowan Romance, some Rowan Tapestry soy yarn in self-striping colours. I cannot find a nice internet pic of Tapestry but I can assure all of you unable to *touch* it that it is about 300% lovelier in the flesh than any picture on the internet.

I have little recollection of the visit, other than occasionally moaning to myself as new and glorious yarns appeared in my vision. When I came to I had an arm full of Kid Classic and had lost the ability to do the maths required to figure out how much it was going to cost me [I no longer cared anyway]

So my colour choices are;

I think I'll probably go with this as it's so *warm*

or the grey?

or the ice blue?

I have arranged the balls in the stripe order of the jumper.
Whaddya think? I'm still getting the circs I need [my first Addi Turbos - woo!] and have also imposed a restriction on personal knitting until after the 9th September [which is my next stall] as I have iPod cosies to knit...

I say the warm version, but the ice blue didn't come u on my monitor so maybe it's gorgeous. I can really see you in that hoodie you know. I think that Tapestry yarn looks gorge btw.

ooh - thanks for the cupcakes links - Will check them out!

Yep Kathleen - I think my mind is made up with the warm one, it just seems to draw me with its warmth.

Am getting on with my cosies like a good girl. Having problems with the badges tho due to my iMac biting the dust :( gah!
