Green with delight



It's done! And I love it!

Pattern: Central Park Hoodie from fall '06 Knitscene.
Yarn: Ella Rae Classic in "Leaf Green" (no color names, just numbers)
Needles: Clover Bamboo US 7s & 9s.
Dates: Started Labor Day weekend. The back was finished way back in November, after much neglect. And I started the sleeves & fronts after the Christmas knitting was done. Took a while, but overall, not a great deal of knitting time.
Mods: I had to go up a needle size to get gauge, but other than that, none!
Thoughts: Love it. It is just the color green I wanted, the cables look great, without being "too" done. I knit the 40", and it's just perfect. I opted for no fasteners, and I like it. I had purchased some buttons for it, but I decided that they were too much for the sweater, so I left them off. The sleeves are a great length, which is very important for me.

The yarn is fab - an amazing selection of colors, and it is soooooo soft and nice after blocking. I cannot wait to use it again.

Enjoy your weekends - hunker down if you're in the path of the storm!
