Some progress, finally!!!

I am finally making some progress on my Central Park Hoodie. I am up to the point where I am working on the hood. Here are some pictures of the shoulder seams. I crocheted it on the wrong side using the Single Crochet stitch.

Wow!!! What a neat seam for my first try. This is why it is very important to bind off loosely.
Now it is starting to actually look like a sweater.
Progress on the hood, about 4 inches.
I added the cable to the center of the hood. It looks better this way. Only 7 more inches to go!! Woohoo! You think maybe I can finish this before the week is done?
Although there were many distractions while knitting this sweater, I am all excited all over again, and I am still in love with the color.
