Central park hoodie

I bought the pattern yesterday for the Central Park Hoodie! I’m going to buy yarn at my knit night on Thursday but I can’t start it until October 1st because that’s the start of the new 4-H year, and if I want to show it at the fair next year, it has to be completed during the 2010-2011 4-H year which is October 1st to September 30th. I’m going to use Cascade 220. This is made easier by the fact that my sister and I puppysat some puppies in August and got paid, or otherwise I would have no yarn money. I’m really excited to start it though! Maybe after I buy the yarn I’ll spend the next week swatching.

The sweater I’m making for my American Girl doll is going swimmingly! I finished the front (I’m doing them separately so the stripes the yarn makes aren’t so narrow) and am a few rows into the back. I made a few modifications so far. One was to bind off a couple stitches on each side to create a little armhole shaping. I thought this would work better because I wanted to put a little bit of ribbing on the armhole (it’s going to be a vest, so no sleeves). I really like how it looks so far. It’s too dark in my house now to take pictures but there will definitely be pictures tomorrow. 🙂

Also, I have a partial skein of brown Caron Simply Soft which is going to become a little sweater for my church for Lutheran World Relief. I’m pretty sure it won’t be enough for a whole baby sweater, but that’s okay because we have a almost whole skein of pink Caron Simply Soft. I’ll make stripes. 🙂

And all this time that I just spent writing this post should have been spent doing my algebra homework. Guess I’ll do it now. Bye!
