Redwood Lacey Hoodie, FO

Pattern: Lacy Leisure Hoodie, by Gayle Bunn, from Creative Knitting, May 2008
Yarn: 7 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca, colorway Redwood. I had only a few inches left.
Needles: Size 8 circs
Mods: I eliminated ribbing at sleeves and body of the sweater. I knit most of it in the round. Picked up stitches around the armholes and knit in the round, top down. I missed increasing stitches after the ribbing so the pattern did not match up in shoulders:(. My sleeves came out quite wide. If I had more yarn, I would have made the sweater a little longer.

Comments: I love knitting with Ultra Alpaca. It slips smoothly on the needles. I am a bit done with fuzzy yarn for a while, though. I bought so much of this yarn on sale at Webs, and I have finally used it all up!! The pattern is well written and easy to follow. The lace is very pretty and easy to remember.
