About a year after I bought the pattern, I finally made Hoodsie for Evy. This was a great little pattern, I got to use up some stash yarn, and it's a nice practical hand-knit for the colder months. All around win.
I used Knit Picks Swish in Indigo Heather, which is really a nice little yarn. It's soft and squishy, and affordable. The colors are pretty, and I think it knits up nicely too.
The only downside is that it tends a pill a bit. However, I must admit that I have only ever used Swish for Evy's sweaters. And as any toddler would, she wears her clothes out! I should use Swish to make myself something to see how it holds up to normal wear and tear. Did I just create another reason to buy more yarn?
