W00t! CPH is finished!
I don't take good pictures. And I hate having my picture taken. So please look at the sweater, and not the goofy expressions on my face.
Isn't it gorgeous though? Ahhhhhh I'm SO glad it's done. My first 'real' grown up sweater. I've knitted a couple of sweaters in Wool Ease Thick & Quick on size 13 or 15 needles, but those don't really count.
Central Park Hoodie, 36" size
Yarn - Vanna's Choice, Olive, 7 balls, only used about 1/10 of the last one. For a super cheap acrylic, I like this yarn. It's soft and it knits up nicely.
Needles- size 9 and 10.5
Took about 6 weeks, but that was with lots of slack off time.
I'm so thrilled with it. It fits perfectly, it's comfy and warm. only thing I'd have done differently was maybe graft the shoulder seams. I did make it about 2" longer than called for, and the sleeves are about 2" longer too, because I like sleeves that hit my fingertips. They fold back if I want them to. Super easy pattern, but very satisfying. I totally recommend it. :o)
:::squeeeee!!::: I'm SO glad this is finally done!
