I've been wanting to knit these two skeins up in something together ever since I swatched for something else using some leftover Bark from my Cinnamon Scone cowl and leftover Weathervane from a shawl. (I had to substitute Forge for Weathervane since I couldn't get any more.)

This is my Rumple Scrap scarf/wrap -

The colors make me really happy :)

Late Summer KAL!!

I'm so excited about this pattern and this knit-a-long :)  I love hoodies. I thought a lot about what I wanted in a knitted one. A hood of course -

and a kangaroo pocket -

big buttons with button loops -

Long long sleeves -

and a split garter hem -

I love wearing these!

Because there are so many parts to a hoodie and because some people find the top-down simultaneous sleeve sweater construction intimidating, I'm hosting a KAL in my Ravelry group. Tips and chat, pictures and prizes! Part 1 goes out on August first. Right now you can download the planning sheet so you can find your yarn, pick your size, check your gauge. I think the KAL is going to be a lot of fun - I hope you'll join us!
