On a much deserved day off I have not taking this beautiful and happily warm hoodie off. My whole weekend had been filled with happenings here and there. My Saturday was filled with school events and Sunday I enjoyed myself at Patricia's Superbowl sale before heading to my BF's house for the game.
I seamed this up while watching the SB. I love how no one gave me any flack for seaming while watching the game. I did partake in a few party events (read: beer pong) in between the sleeve caps - it's a wonder how they all came together sans sobriety. This sweater is so comfortably warm and delicious and with the weather at a high of 19 degrees it was finished just in time. I still need to get some buttons for it and will hopefully do that this week.
I had been worried that this sweater was going to be scratchy. It was started right after finishing Andrew's scarf so going from beautiful Sundara silky merino to straight wool was a bit tough. I cannot lie that at first I wasn't really into it because of the roughness. After a nice bath in the soak though I was not disappointed.
Pattern: Central Park Hoodie from Fall 06 Knit Scene
Yarn: 10 - 11 balls of Classic Elite Skye Tweed
Needles: Size 6 and 8 circular needles
I didn't make any modifications to this sweater but if I were to knit this again I might make the body a tinge bit longer and the sleeves shorter. The pattern was very well written and only had a few minor mistakes that were easy to pick up. I promise to get some better pics, I was pretty much in bed all day (hence the very serious face above!) today only getting off my toosh to take these pics... but anyway, the first sweater of the year is Done and Done!
You didn't think I would waste any time while this hoodie was blocking, did you?
