New to KAL

Hi, I've just joined the KAL. I have managed to knit a fair bit of this, but I think I'll be making another hoodie sometime soon. I live in north wales, united kingdom. Above is a photo of my progress so far. I'm using Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed, and it's knitting up really nice.
Just like to say, how nice everyone else's hoodies are so far :)

I don't know which I like better--that gorgeous color or the toy trucks holding down the edges. Never thought to use them that way!

WOW!!! Your progress is amazing!!! I am so motivated. And the color is delightful. I am also using a yarn that is 18 stitches/ inches. The pattern calls for a yarn that is 17 stitches/4 inches. Did you make any modifications??? I intend to make it the 36" size, although my usual bust measurement is 32". I am just scared that it will be too small, and I won't be able to button it, so that is why I opted for the next size up.

Thanks for the nice comments. I did the 44" size just to make sure. I am normally a 34 or 36" size, but wanted to make sure it fitted, and that I could wear it over stuff. There is plenty of room to spare in mine, if I made it again, I might do the 40" size. The sleeves do come out a bit narrower than I thought they would though this isn't a problem for me, as my arms are quite thin!!
