Hey everyone! I knit this Central Park Hoodie as a 21st birthday present for myself! :happydance: I just finished it tonight, and my birthday is tomorrow - I knit it in a leisurely three weeks with six skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers :inlove: This is my second sweater and I absolutely love it! I'm now fully convinced that I'm not just a sock knitter!!! ;) More details on Ravelry, and I'm going to take actual nice pictures, but I couldn't resist posting now that I'm done!

It looks great! I love the color (my favorite, actually) and it fits you just right. It's not too bulky and not too tight. I think you did a great job :thumbsup:

It is beautiful. I am jealous. My type A personality has stopped me from making my first sweater. I worry about my gauge changing as I knit, and havn't done a sweater. Hand knitted sweaters, was the reason I started knitting!!!!!! You inspired me.
Great Job!!!!!
O.K, I am going for it. Cables and all.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
