Ready To Knit

I am joining the fun of getting ready to start my Central Park Hoodie! I just received my yarn order from Knit Picks today. I have chosen to use Wool of the Andes in colorway Cranberry. To me, this is a warm and fuzzy feeling color and I thought it would be perfect for this sweater. I have also decided that I am going to knit the body in one piece, like several others have done. I really dread seaming so I really like this idea. I will be doing my swatch this weekend and hopefully ready to start the body!

Gorgeous, gorgeous color. I can't wait to see the progress!!! Knitting in one piece will be great, because you will only have to wory about shoulder seams. You think we can do the sleeves in the round too??? Hmmm.....

I'm in love with your color choice, and thinking of what to make with it - I have a KnitPicks order on the way here now, and it looks like I'll be calling them again! Can't wait to see the FO!!
