A good start

Here's my start of the back of the sweater. I'm using my new wooden KnitPicks Options Needles. The yarn is Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky.

It's posted in the Pattern Availability section above, but in case you haven't visited the blog in awhile and still subscribe to posts in a reader, I'm posting this bit of information I found in the latest edition of Yarn Market News.

Interweave Press, publishers of Knitscene magazine (the original source for the Central Park Hoodie pattern), have compiled a collection of 20 of the best patterns from the last five years of Knitscene, and the CPH is featured. This is wonderful news for knitters who have found it a challenge to locate the pattern in past issues. I have not reviewed the book yet to see if the corrections posted here have been incorporated, but I'm excited that the CPH is finding new life!

This could mean a rejuvenation for the KAL! Are you with me?
