For some reason I had been very attracted to the sea foam color this season, much to the dismay of my husband. I made this hoodlet from tiny owl knits, and as impractical as it is, I LOVE it! I think its perfect for picking seashells along a beach, which I only get to do about twice a year. So I just wear it to our Sunday farmer’s market trip.
I started this project at a knitting party my husband’s coworker invited me to at the end of January. So from beginning to finishing it took me 2 month! Well, that is actually not too bad given the amount of time I have. The first 1/3 of the pattern took forever as there’s many cabling and ball making. The last 2/3 are basic stitches and I actually started bringing the project with me on car rides to finish them up faster. There are three mistakes in the hoodlet, can you tell? When I have found them I had gone too far to want to go back to fix them. The ladies at the knitting parties call those “humble stitches”. It reminds you that nothing is perfect. I am just going to have to call them humble stitches from now on! 🙂
All in all, I am very happy with the making of this hoodlet. I learnt how to make ball and how to do kitchener stitch.
I think I might make another one, maybe even one for Kaylee. It is just too whimsical to resist!
(hmm, perhaps I should make that tassel shorter!)

Hoodlet is awesome, wow I need it too! And I love that color!
That hoodlet kicks a*se. I am learning to knit so love looking at peoples creations.
So cute and I think very practical! Where I live the stores and restaurants are always kept so cold (and it’s hot outside), so that would be a great hoodie to bring along to stay warm. Didn’t notice any mistakes – looks great!
I love all the cables!
Amazing color, I love it. And such a whimsical, playful creation. It looks totally cute on you.
