I started this sweater last winter. Um.... yeah.
Well it didn't take me a year to knit - but it did hibernate all spring and summer only to be brought back out again this fall when the weather started to get cool again.
That's alot of wool!
Pattern - Central Park Hoodie from Knitscene Fall 2006
Yarn - Araucania's "Nature Wool Chunky" - purchased at Webs online.
Needles - Knit Picks Options in sizes US 9 and 10.
Alterations - lots! I made it a size larger than the pattern and a bit longer too.
Comments - I am so in love with this sweater. I have been wearing it almost every day in place of a jacket and let me tell ya - it is warm!!! I have to thank Jolene and Amie for teaching me to seam correctly! It really made a huge difference on the finished project.
Wanna see the back?
Do I look happy?
Well, let me dance around for ya to express the joy of wearing my first handknit sweater!!
Thank god it's finally done!!
And as an added bonus - it fits!
PS - Thanks Jolene for the cool t-shirt from Rhinebeck. I didn't get to go - but I love my shirt!!
