Hannah wore her finished Central Park Hoodie on Thanksgiving, for which we were both thankful. She was thankful for a cozy new sweater and I was thankful that it fit because it sure seemed small to me. But Hannah assures me that it fits just the way she wanted and she has already worn it twice since then so I guess I finally hit the jackpot with a handknit for Hannah.
You’re really here for the pictures, though, aren’t you? Never let it be said that I don’t deliver.
The commitment to NaKniSweMo is complete!
The yarn is Plymouth Galway Highland Heather bought from kpixie.
The pattern, I understand, is currently unavailable as the issue of KnitScene is sold out. However, according to the Central Park Hoodie Knitalong Site, it will become available as a downloadable PDF from Knitting Daily some time in December 2007. So, if you haven’t bought this pattern yet, keep the faith. Frankly, a downloadable PDF would have been my preference as Interweave soaked me $5 shipping when I bought the back issue of KnitScene.
The buttons came from Saftlers.
The attitude came from the teenager.
The knitting skillz came from Mom. And that makes the teenager happy. I’m thankful that something does.
