Secret Sweater In Progress




I'm still working on that sweater-coat design I mentioned previously. Only now it is far less cabled. I had to make a tough decision to edit my design and rip out an entire huge section which was painful for me to say the least. Even though I hated to do it, I feel like the sweater is much more refined and elegant now and I like it so much more than I did previously. It was worth it in the end.

All I have left to figure out is the hood, which I am excited and nervous about. I have never put a hood on one of my sweaters before! 

Although this sweater-coat is a bit plain looking from the front, it has a little "secret something" about it that I think you will love. Stay tuned to find out what it is. This sweater pattern will be appearing in 
Botanical Knits Volume 2!

You are too good, a volume 2-really??? I am overjoyed, will there also be companion patterns for children? I received my book in the mail last week and plan to knit every single project, I love them all!

All I can think of with the mention of a hood on this sweater is the story you shared about the hood on a Debbie Bliss baby sweater. :-)
