Just getting started

I have had the Central Park Hoodie on the brain since I first saw it. Soon after, I narrowed my yarn choice to Araucania Nature Wool Chunky. I just couldn't bring myself to click the 'order' button to buy the yarn. Then Stitches West came along and Webs had a booth there. Next thing you know, i'm in line with a bag of yarn. Hooray! The hoodie is finally started. I am just over one ball in and I am lovin' it!

The yarn really isn't that chunky, and it is color number 129 in case you are interested. You can follow more of my hoodie progress on my blog.

hi tracey,

I wouldn't describe the araucania soft. It seems to be a bit coarse, but my swatch softened up a lot when I washed it.
