CPH Started

I have been lurking on this site awhile longing to knit a Central Park Hoodie. I didn't jump in because I've been trying to participate in the Knit From Your Stash 2007 Challenge. Unfortunately, all your pictures been the Sirens Lure to me. I'm smitten! I picked up the Knitscene yesterday at my LYS and when I spotted this beautiful red Tahki Donegal Tweed I could no longer resist!

I finished the back ribbing this morning on Britanny 4.0mm needles. Isn't this a lovely color?

I'm feeling slightly guilty. I only made it three months without purchasing yarn. Why did you guys tempt me?

Love the color!

You get one "Get Out Of Jail Free" card in Knit From Your Stash 2007—so you're OK after all! You haven't yet fallen off the Stash Wagon. :-)

Well if you had to fall off the wagon, you chose the prettiest darn yarn to do it with, and a great sweater to knit. Welcome to the fun.
