Happy Chanukkah, Hannah!

I've finished Hannah's Chanukkah Hoodie, just in time for my birthday. Yes, you read that correctly -- her holiday gift is just now finished, in April, in time for MY birthday. Better badly timed than never!







The pattern was only written in women's medium, so I took it down a hook size and crocheted a little tighter than normal. I'm hoping that makes it a rough x-small! Instead of the recommmended 6 balls of Bernat Softee Chunky, I used 5. And yes, it's zippered! Hallelujah!

Pattern: Family Circle Easy Crochet, Fall/Winter 2005
Yarn: Bernat Softee Chunky, 5 balls cream
Hook: Size J
Time: Dec. 8, 2005 - Apr. 8, 2006, with a flurry of activity Apr. 7-8!
