Mods: That hood, that was a challenge. I had finished it but it didn't look right. Thankfully, my friend Holly whom I did a KAL for this sweater with had worked out the bugs and by following her notes I was able to fix the hood. I had to do the crochet border twice as the first attempt was a bit wonky, to say the least. Still deciding on a closure, looking for the perfect big button and will then add a crocheted button loop.
Final thoughts: This sweater is so cozy, makes me want to curl up in my chair with a glass of wine, my knitting and a good show. With the lack of closure on the neckline and the weight of the hood, it does creep back a bit but hopefully inspiration will strike and I will fix that. Not sure that I'd knit this again but I'd highly recommend it and the Eco Wool, love the Eco Wool. Such a rustic yet affordable yarn with so much yardage.
