Half done?

I began my Central Park Hoodie just before Christmas. I'm working on a few projects, so I'm not as far as I had hoped. I loved looking at everyones Hoodies so much, I just had to join in and make one for me. I'm using the Tahki Donegal Tweed called for, purchased from someone elses stash off Ebay, so the price is right!

I did the sleeves first (giant swatches). Now I'm doing the body in one piece - I hate to seam. Last night I finished the right front and began the back. I may take out the bind off on the right front and just short row the last few rows so I can do a three needle bindoff. Like I say, I hate to seam!

I'm alternating work on my sweater with work on a different sweater for my husband, so my progress will probably not be too swift. But I'm certainly enjoying this sweater!
