It's hard to see how textured this hoodie is, but it's got a row of bobbles spaced at either 7 or 13 stitches apart every 10th row. Apart from the ribbing, placket and i-cord, the bobble pattern is over the entire garment. I'm not using the TSC yarn. I found a great deal on Knit One Crochet Too Wick, a soy/ polypropylene blend that is rumored to wick moisture away. So, this is a warm weather hoodie. It would be nice to wear it a time or 2 if we have some Indian Summer days. I will take pictures of it before and during blocking and then, assembled.
How's the yarn? Well, it's interesting. Once washed and blocked, it's softer than during knitting. It's the tiniest bit splitty and very snaggy, much like silk. You need smooth hands and slippery needles to enjoy knitting with this yarn. I think I paid a little more than a dollar a skein when I bought 20 skeins from an eBay seller. So, the cost of this garment will balance the cost of some garments I recently made and am making out of Claudia handpainted fingering.
