Apart from essentially knitting it twice....

Officially I started the red and grey hoodie on October 22,2011, but as I had to start it all over really I didn't get moving on this until October 29th, so be completely done by today is not too shabby.

We won't mention that it sat around for three days waiting for me to purchase and sew in a zipper!

Stats:  The First Brother's Sweater, aka Emilien
Lion Brand Wool Ease in Ranch Red and Oxford Grey
Size 6 and 7 (US) needles, Signature Arts Stiletto Tipped circulars that were a "cheer you up" present, and what a present I got one of each sizes 3-9.  You know who you are that provided that pick me up and all I can say is THANK YOU!
I knit the smallest size, chopped a few inches off the length and put in a 24 inch zipper.
Wanna see?




Which means for Christmas knitting I am only committed to make : 2 more blankets, 3 more hoodies, 2 more pairs of socks.

Better get knitting!

Easy-peasy. You'll knock off that lot in no time. The hoodie looks great. What a good mum you are!
