Back to the Park
After getting completely distracted over Christmas by some lovely presents (above), I'm back at it, plugging away with the Central Park Hoodie. Actually, the distraction was an adult-sized EZ Tomten for myself out of Araucania Nature Wool Chunky I had previously gotten on sale for $2/skein (!) However, I got the bulk of the body knitted, tried it on, and the garter-stitch sweater *grew* lengthwise by at least 6 inches. I knew garter stitch was stretchy, but this was ridiculous. What I had planned to be a nice jacket that came to my hips was now some stretched-out thing that reached my thighs. Off the new Denise needles it came and I finished the back of the Central Park Hoodie last night and cast on for the left front, as well. I'm really hoping to finish it before an exciting trip Feb 2 to see my oldest friend.
