Hoodie---- is it me- or is the HOOD endless???

Had to rip back my fronts. Grrrrrr. I just could NOT get them to line up. (I knit them individually) so- I ripped them back - till they were even - and before the shaping--- then put them both on my circs and finished them together.
Highly recommend knitting fronts and sleeves 2 at a time. Harder to keep track the pattern- but it sure makes for easier matching of measurements.

I seamed my shoulders and picked up my stitches for the hood. The hood seems endless. Is it just me? I have a feeling the ribbing yet to come will be even more so! However- at least it's good tv/movie knitting!

Yikes, I'm just getting to the hood – thanks for the warning! Your hoodie looks great; I love the color.

I was a little (!) obsessive and counted rows on both the fronts and the sleeves; made it easy to match them up, anyway.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm working the back and sides of mine together, so I won't have to match them up, but I will definitely do both sleeves at once.
Your's is looking great! It's so motivating to see all of you that are farther along than me.
