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