Goings on

The weather, last weeks' girly get together and inspiration from a couple of patterns from the current issue of Vogue Knit1 magazine put me back into mustknitsomething mode, and as a result I'm anxiously awaiting some yarn for this:

specifically, the first photo, the shrug thing.
I'm doing it in the 'coal' colorway with KnitPicks merino Swish DK. I hope I love it because you know, I don't decide to go out on a garment knitting adventure all that often and I'd hate to end up with something not nice.
I'm also seriously considering the hoodie in the third photo here:

but I must say I'm concerned that it will be too warm for even our most sub-zero days, as it is knit with a TRIPLE strand of Lion brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick. But I've always been weirdly obsessed with those giant gauge knit items and the hoodie seems like something I might actually wear and maybe not look too bad in. OTOH, having to buy 10 or 12 skeins of sort of ishycrylic yarn, even if I can get it on sale at he crap I mean craft store, is not all that appealing to me. So I guess I'm still on the fence. Maybe I'll dig around on the web a bit and see if I can find some examples of the F.O.

I would totally wear that hoodie. I think you should go for it!
