A lot of short things.
I have finished the knitting on Coastal Hoodie.
It is looking pretty sweet. I ended up mixing yarns because I couldn’t find other available colours of Malabrigo Arroyo that I liked. I went with Araucania Ranco and somehow it’s not machine-washable, which you would think would have been one of the things I checked when matching it up, but I guess I was so focused on finding a similar weight and that was challenging because the Malabrigo is labelled as sport but is closer to a fingering. Checking the comments for Araucania, that’s also the case with that yarn. Why didn’t I just check the fingering weight section for something appropriate and machine washable? I can’t recall. So anyway, I do think the Araucania looks a bit shabbier and it will prevent me from machine washing, but maybe after a hand wash and blocking it will look okay (the biggest issue is on the sleeves where I tried to duplicate stitch to hide the jogs but I’m not sure how successful I was. Anyway, I think I left my main set of sewing needles at my parents’ and my wool needles are too big to fit through the holes of the buttons I picked while the eyes on my remaining few are too small to fit wool through, so that project is just awaiting my purchasing new sewing needles to finish and then I will show it off.
