Central Park Hoodie, Here I Come!

I am diving in head first, and making one of these. Have you seen it? The Central Park Hoodie? It is awesome. I had to buy it. I am taking a tiny break from knitting my gauge swatch, to tell you about it... I don't know if this yarn will work out or not. (Wool-Ease... I have a ton of it in Burgundy Sprinkles.) I so want to make one in the yellow-green, but I think I am allergic to wool. I itch SO bad when I wear it, anyway. So I am going to try to find a non-wool alternative to use. Meanwhile, I am going to see if this yarn will work.... Stay tuned. :)

Tina, I did see this as a matter of fact and thought 'boy, this is sooo nice! I wish I'. Well, I did save the link to the pattern at the time and am going to relearn how to knit in the early new year! When I can knit good enough I'm going to make this for myself, I just love it!!
I hope you will keep us updated on your progress. I bet it's going to turn out great!!

I got enough yarn, but it is Red Heart in 'Frosty Green'. I don't know how it will turn out... I will keep you updated. I might have to get some better quality yarn. Cables are actually fun~ and easy; once you figure them out. It does take a little more concentration, but I think it is worth it. :p And believe me, I sat here and argued with myself, 'I can't make that, it is going to be too hard...' for a long time before I actually bought the pattern. But I kept going back and looking at it.... and... you know the rest. ;)
