Finally Finished

In the quest to finish some of my lingering WIP's, I finally tackled the seaming and the blocking of Central Park Hoodie. And it's DONE!!!!

Central Park Hoodie

Pattern: Central Park Hoodie. Raveled here.
Yarn: Valley Yarns Northampton in Fawn
Needles: Knit Picks Options in US size 10
Date Originally Started: 6/27/08
Date Frogged: 8/1/09
Date New Version Started: 8/14/09
Date Finished: 6/23/10
Mods: I made the body and sleeves longer than the pattern calls for. I'm 5'10". So my monkey arms have to go somewhere!

Central Park Hoodie- Blocked

Thank goodness for blocking. I tried it on before and it was a hot mess. But once blocked, it looks like an actual sweater. I can see myself grabbing this instead of a jacket as I run out of the house. Very useful type of sweater. Too bad it's 85 degrees here today!

looks like it'll be a total go-to once fall arrives! And completely hear you on the blocking....

Looks great!
I'm working on mine now too. I just finished up the hood and now need to work on the sleeves. I'm not looking forward to that, but I am looking forward to the finished project!
