YO! it's a FO!

Pattern: Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky
Yarn: Knitpicks Swish worsted in Indigo Heather
I cast on for this one at the lake last summer. It's dragged on and been dragged out once in a while since then. I decided last week to finish once and for all, cause this is really a pretty mindless project and it basically knits itself. Why it didn't just finish knitting itself in the cupboard over the winter I don't know. Sweaters can be lazy, I guess.

I'm somewhat undecided about buttons. I have some wooden ones I might use. It's warm out now, anyway, so I won't be wearing it every day for awhile. Sorry about the wonky photos. I got both guys in my house to take a shot at it but they got bored, plus my camera is terrible. I'm researching a new one.
Anyway, I think I like this sweater and will wear it a lot. It's cozy. It's purple. I just realized the hood looks weirdly shaped. It's just folded a bit. (Or maybe it's my hat-related curse).


  1. WOW!!! That sweater is amazing! I'm so impressed with your skills.

  2. ugh... i'm so jealous of your closet. can i live in it for a day? the joy of cardigans, scarves and mitts. cozy cozy cozy.



  3. rawbean: You could totally make this one. It's really not a hard pattern.

    chantoon: 90% of what I make seems to be for other people, so there's less in my closet than I'd like. I'm working on changing that.

    You both are so sweet. Thanks!

  4. Wow, it looks beautiful on you! I love the color. Everytime I see that knit up I want to make one....maybe this fall :)

  5. We were camping high desert in the middle of Nevada. A long drive but usually worth it :)

  6. Holy crap is that ever awesome! I would totally wear that.

    I'm working on my first sweater (still). I think I started it in 2007. It's the worst pattern EVER. I just looked it up online and there are tons of corrections.....blah.
