Basic Chic Hoodie in Cascade Sierra (a wool/cotton blend), color Sienna. And, yes, I did want to buy the blue Sierra instead of this color, but I already have 2 blue lightweight jackets. Also, I liked getting Sienna Sierra.
This got off to a slow start since I cast on away from home and had no stitch markers with me -- the pattern uses stitch markers starting in the first row. Digging through my bag I found 2 paperclips and a long narrow strip of grubby Hello Kitty fleece left from making AnnaBeth's current jammies; I managed to tug the strip in half to make 2 slightly shorter strips (no clue why that fabric was in my bag). When I got home I switched to regular markers. While driving home, though, my mind was on stitch markers, and I was seized by an overwhelming desire to have little Sculpey pumpkins as stitch markers. Obviously other people think along these lines since I found several sets on Etsy. Part of me wants to try making them myself (frugal! creative!) and part of me thinks I really have better things to do with my time then making tiny little sculptures and visiting shops to find jump rings, etc.
Here's the thing -- this is a wonderfully mindless knit, so I have plenty of time to think about things like whether or not to make stitch markers. Heck, I have time to read a book! After crocheting all those lace collars and knitting all those little cables on FiFi, it's a great change of pace.
