Yarn Along - Hoodie, Washcloth and Sunset

Joining Ginny's Yarn Along again this week and Work in Progress Wednesday.
This is the hood of the hoodie I am knitting for Joaquin.  He is growing so fast, I need to knit FASTER!  I decided to knit a different contrast pattern and it reminds me of the zigzag on Charlie Brown's shirt, but my husband quickly rose to my defense, claiming it absolutely DOES NOT and is very nice.  What do you think?
Because nearly all books are packed up for the big move this Saturday, this week I am reading the Sunset magazine that arrived in the mail today.  I laughed when I read the cover "Best Places to Live" since we are moving this week.  Too late to move to one of the "best places".  (smile)

I also started on another horse washcloth, this time in a lovely smokey lavender color.  I received so many nice comments about the one I finished last week, it inspired me to knit another one!  Thank you for all the encouraging feedback.  As a "new" knitter, it really made me feel happy.

We are moving into a nice rental home on a farm in Clarksburg, CA.  The farm is planted in grapes and this will be our view from our backyard.  We are very excited about the move and daunted by the amount of work ahead to accomplish it!  Wish me luck!


  1. That lavender is a gorgeous colour, it'll be such a pretty washcloth!

  2. I'm a big fan of Charlie Brown, but it didn't twig that way to me. Can't wait to see the next horse washcloth - the yarn looks delicious!

  3. Good luck with your move! From that view I would say you are moving to one of the best places. : ) The hoodie looks great.

  4. That hood is fantastic---and doesn't remind me of Charlie Brown's shirt at all, although I love Charlie Brown and wouldn't think that was a bad thing! ;) I really love the stripe style and high contrast, so eye-pleasing.

    Best of luck with your upcoming move!

  5. Congrats and Good Luck with the move! So exciting!!

    Love the hoodie hood - colors are great!!

  6. Best of luck on the move.

    I like the hood of the hoodie just the way it is. Hubby has good taste. ;-)

  7. Hi Kerri,
    Congratulations on the move! How exciting for all of you.
    I blogged about your amazing fudge today. Thank you so much!

  8. I hope your move goes smoothly and your hoodie looks great! Love the colors!!

  9. Love the combination of gray and yellow for the hoodie!

    Good luck on your move. Moving isn't fun, but it is so good to settle into a new place. Hope you make it feel like home very soon.
