I finished the Central Park Hoodie (sans hood) the night before we left for Virginia. In fact, I was still picking the basting thread out at the airport! (Not intentionally, I just missed a few stitches and then some scraps stuck to the wool.) I wore it everywhere in VA and it was quite the conversation piece.
I’m very, very pleased with how the CPH turned out. I’ll write more about the mods I made and how they turned out when I have a chance to take some pictures with something other than my cell phone. I think I have pictures of the zipper-sewing which really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. For now, though, I’m going to don my CPH and help Lowell put up the Christmas lights. We’re horribly behind the rest of the neighborhood.
