On to the Hood!

I've just finished blocking out all the body pieces and will sew the shoulder seams and get the hood going tonight. I'm knitting mine in the Tahki Donegal Tweed and was concerned that the yarn might be scratchy. That was until I gave the pieces a bath in Eucalan yesterday and they've come out of their blocking as soft as butter.

The yarn also opens up a bit when it blocks, so keep that in mind--at least mine did. I can't wait to finish this sweater. BTW, isn't crazy how two different cameras pick up and record the color? The top pic is probably closest to the real color.
