Almost there..coming down the home stretch

It has been a while since I posted, so I wanted to update everyone. I am trying to finish this before the trip to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival at Rhinebeck, which is in 16 days.

Here is a work in progress of my buttonband done all in one piece. I joined 3 cables from the Boye Needlemaster kit to make this work

In order to pick up the stitches, I picked 3 then skipped 1. When I got to the center of the hood I picked up every stitch for about 8 stitches. I had to add 4 on each side to even out the ribbing. I picked up 328 stitches in total.

I also found a mistake on the left front portion.
I made one cable cross a few rows before where it should have been. However, I am going to keep it. I think it makes my sweater look very special, and noone will have the same thing. LOL!!! Funny I say that on a KAL forum.

If someone comes up to you at Rhinebeck and says, "You finished your Robin's Egg Blue Central Park Hoodie!" - that will be me!
