KAL Diary: The Shepherd Hoodie, Week 6


Well.  Sometimes we just need a break from a project, for whatever reason.

This week, my mind has been ‘elsewhere’, and every time I picked up the hoodie, I really could not get into it.  I’d knit for five minutes, and my mind would wander away, and before I knew it, I was tinking more than I was knitting!

Shepherd Hoodie Week 6I’ve only got as far as the middle of the second sleeve!  The hoodie is nearly done, but this week was not the time to do finish it.

Instead, my mind has been preoccupied with, and working on a new long-term project that I will be telling you about very, very soon.  Once conceived, it was very hard to stop working on it, so I just had to go with the flow.

Sally has written a beautiful post about her week, and you can see how well her hoodie is coming long here.

Watch out for a new post from me tomorrow!

In the meantime, I think I’ll spend the remaining hours of Sunday doing a little bit more justice to the Shepherd Hoodie…

Welcome to my blog where I talk about knitting in New Zealand and the beautiful yarns you can find here.

  1. Yours is looking fabulous! I found the sleeve a more arduous knit than I had expected but I think the weight and bulk of the whole garment in my lap may have had something to do with that. The ‘long-term project’ sounds very exciting and obviously worthy of your undivided attention!

  2. Looking good – crisp 🙂

  3. It looks great! Look forward to reading about your long-term project.
    Have a lovely day.
