First sweater done!

My Central Park Hoodie (first one ever) is finished! I'm really happy with how it turned out, and its super warm, which is good as its just turning cold where I am.

I knitted size 36", which is a little loose fitting around my chest, but the sleeves are quite snug. Made some very slight modifications- grafted the top of the hood and added 2" to the length, which made it pointy (not what I wanted to achieve!). I knit the button band in one piece with a long circular needle, but I need to re-block the button band as I cast off a bit too tight.

The yarn I used was a 12 ply felted lambswool and got gauge with 4.5/5mm needles.
