I present Woodland Sage Hitofude!

I had to wait until Thanksgiving morning to get photos of the finished cardigan. Sorry I made you wait for the final unveil. I needed to stack the posts for the end of the month and as mentioned, earlier in the week, when this posts, I'll be at the beach. ;-)

My stitch count may have more. There was that whole figuring out that the pattern didn't match up so tinking and re-doing. Plus there were extra stitches to do the bind off, but I just counted the row stitches because I was tired and didn't want to try to figure out how many there were. I definitely met the goal of 50, 000 stitches! NaKniSweMo target accomplished! There are about 69206 stitches.

My lovely Woodland Sage Hitofude:

My dear husband needs to look behind me and move me. Also full sun in the face isn't good. But was in a hurry to get them done.Maybe better ones at the beach!

I'm going to get a lot of use out of this cardigan! This is going to take me through the end of Fall, through Winter and all the way through Spring. It has also made me want to knit another cardigan, but one out of a heavy weight yarn. I think I might have enough yarn to do the Central Park Hoodie - Michele happens to have a purple one here. I have that purple yarn that is multi-toned:
I think I'm going to over dye it and a bit of purple Cascade 220 so that I have enough yardage. Since the hoodie portion of it is done last, I may opt to forego that part. The temptation is to jump in and strike while the iron is hot, but reality says, I need to get some projects done for the munchkins towards Christmas gifts.

If you hadn't figured it out yet, I was also quietly trying to do NaBloPoMo. I found out about it a couple days too late to get in on the possible prizes but figured why not do it anyway? ;-) Hence why the great unveil was the last post of the month. I have no idea how many of the family look at my blog. It's not hidden from them, but over the month of December I'll try to do better than one post a week or one for the month and continue regular blog posts. There's a Yule event too to share.

(The Hitofude is entered in the NaKniSweMo group's prize category for meeting the goal, if you're a member of Ravelry you can see it here.)
Thank you for visiting!


  1. The CPH is a fun, easy knit. Except when you don't pay attention and knit the fronts to different lengths! Enjoy.

    1. I'm trying to resist jumping in and starting it! I really need to get holiday stuff either knit or sewn and two days of migraines aren't helping things. There will be canned things as gifts this year I think too.
