One purple sleeve

There were a few “run around” chores on the list today plus one canner of 7 pints of pears to can.   So I didn’t get much done, but here is the first sleeve.

I wish I knew how to add a hood to this little sweater.   It’s a size one, can any of you help me with directions for a hood?

      Thank you much for the kind words. Yes, there has been a lot of canning in the last two months.

    Fresh canned pears. YUM!! Your sweater is beautiful. Sorry that I can’t help with adding a hood. Did you google or Youtube it?

      Thank you for your kind words. I haven’t even looked yet, life has been too full.
      Yes, pears this week and in a couple weeks, the apples will be here, but there won’t be the same type of rush, except we’re on our last jar of appl.esauce. I dehydrate most of the pears and they are like candy

    There are lots of hooded sweaters on Ravelry. Have you looked there? Generally you can pick up the hood from the neck of the sweater instead of doing ribbing.

      Thank you for that idea. I’ve been just busy enough, I hadn’t thought of that. Great idea. Hopefully this coming week.
