hoodie
I started knitting a hoodie a year ago and while most of it is complete, I redid the hood (lots of work: 4 balls of 8 ply). It's now being sewn up and not before time as winter is now here. I'll post a pic soon!

Hey there Miss Charlotte, it's VERY cosy and I'm enjoying this Sydney winter so I can actually wear it.

I'm actually thinking I might attach a toggle button to bring it closed up the nect a bit higher. Thought about a small zip and then thought - nah, too fiddly.
