Central Park Hoodie - finished!

The Central Park Hoodie is finished and I've been wearing it for a couple weeks now! It's taken me this long to get my butt in gear and take some pics. This morning was pretty sunny in our apartment...so what better time then now?

I love, love, love this sweater. It's my favorite I've made ever. It's very, very warm (great for the Boston winters) and fits just the way I wanted it to. I lengthened the sleeves and the body so it would get a bit more coverage and I love it!

Here's the specs:
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride worsted weight
Color: Loden Leaf (discontinued)
Yardage: 8 skeins (barely used the 8th)
Needles: 6 and 8
Size: 40"
Notes: I lengthened the body by 3" and lengthened the sleeves by 2". Everything else is exactly as the pattern specified. I love this yarn and will be using it again.

Now...here are some more pics of me in my new sweater.
