Central park hoodie


Life is a little crazy at the moment, what with weekends away and getting ready for the imminent arrival of the bathroom fitters (buying tiles, ordering tiles, choosing, ordering and taking delivery of baths and taps and gawd knows what else) so I apologise for my rather unsatisfactory posting of late.

I hope that things will return to something like normal in the next week or two, in the meantime I can show you that despite my hectic schedule, the knitting is not being neglected. The blog postings are usually sacrificed to knitting time, which I'm sure you'll agree is the way things should be.

Central Park Hoodie is knitting up so fast I'm wondering why I ever knit in anything smaller than aran yarn! And it's such an easy knit! These pieces are now being blocked as I write - I'm a little bit worried that the sleeves will be too long because I've 'adjusted' my loose gauge by knitting a smaller size rather than using smaller needles, which is ok on the width but can be a problem on the length (when you have instructions such as 'every eighth row').

hey ho, we'll see!

Looking good! Things are a bit manic for me too at the moment, but the knitting news is that I have finished the back of the cardigan I was doing and am about a quarter through the left front!

It's coming along nicely!
