Central Park Hoodie Part Two
Today was a lovely day for knitting. Snow day with classes cancelled at my workplace so I could stay indoors and knit away on the back of my Central Park Hoodie. I made significant progress, starting the bindoff for the sleeve and progressing beyond to the neck. I had hoped to complete the back today. But,when I noticed that I had placed a cable two rows too early I decided to call it a day, frogged back to the mistake and got my stitches back on the needles. When I first began the sweater and completed the ribbing I decided that I was making the sweater too large so went down a size. Today I decided perhaps I should check the back against some of my sweaters that I frequently wear and love. To my surprise most of them are wider than I thought. Alas, my CPH is too small. Tonight I will frog and tomorrow I will begin again. Will it knit more quickly the second time? We'll see. I keep reminding myself that this is my first sweater and a learning experience so I have indeed learned something about sizing.
