The Wonderful Wallaby is the knitted version of a classic hooded sweatshirt. It is knit in the round from the bottom up until the hood, which is knit back and forth. The stitches for the pouch pocket are picked up from the body, and knit back and forth. Sleeve shaping is done via raglan decreases. Sizing is child’s size 2-12.

Prerequisites: You should be comfortable casting on, knitting, purling, and casting off, and should be familiar with a method for knitting small tubes—double points, two circulars, or magic loop.

Malabrigo Rasta in the TriBeCa range of colors. Super bulky = super fast, plus with this range of pretty pastels, you can pretend to be an Olympic ski star!

Super bulky yarns are great for whipping up fast gifts, even more so when super soft Malabrigo Rasta is involved! Check out this bundle of Ravelry patterns for ideas about what to do with just one gloriously squishy skein!

Fernet Branca

As quickly as the sleeves came together, I feel like this should be farther along than it is! Still, the front and sleeves are complete*, and once the back is finished, there will be just a few seams and the addition of the neck edging. The Blue Sky Woolstok is a dream to knit with, and gives life to both the cables and the textured stitches featured in Fernet Branca.

*Keeping it real—taking this pic, I realized that my sleeves are not the same length. I suspect the longer one is correct. Further investigation is required!

Anthology Hat

I finished the hat I was knitting with the Anthology KAL group. Initially, I wasn’t crazy about the section with the lightest blue, but it’s grown on me a little. In any case, it’s a testament to how much fun it is to mix and match motifs!
