Well I've started it I'm doing the fronts and sleeves before the back. Its knitting up quick.



I'm not using the Tahnki's Donegal Tweed but an aran weight wool.

OOOH LOVELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why are you starting with the sleeves? I was "thinking" of starting with the back. It seemed like it might be easier to get the hang of the pattern that way.

I am afraid I won't be able to start til Thursday :-(

I've always done the small items first. Its so I don't get bored with the pattern before doing the fronts and sleeves. If I do them first then I can push myself to finish the back. Instead of doing the back and then putting it down and not finishing it.

I've read about people who start with the sleeves first, to get a feel for the actual gauge and stitch pattern. You don't have to knit as much to see how the yarn will work up so if you have to rip out, there's not as much time spent on it.

oooh nice! I have heard about using sleeves as a swatch. hmm, maybe I'll start with a sleeve too. Although I think I may want to try and do the sleeves in the round.

I wanna join, too! But I do have to finish my son's sweater first-only one sleeve and the neckband to go! YAH!

kristinw, that yarn is gorgeous!!

I have the pattern, now I just need to choose my yarn that's the fun part! I'd like to use stash yarn but I'm not sure I have enough of anything. And I would love an excuse to buy more-I want red I think and I don't have any red and I do have a gift card I can use *any* where, even the LYS-or even better, online. Then I don't have to make the 50 mile drive to the "L"YS, lol.

I think I want to do mine in the round, too, if possible.That's a great idea about starting the sleeve as a swatch! I am nervous about the cables though, all the cables I've done so far have looked stretched on the last cable stitch, if ykwim. Is that normal?

Catz, yours looks great so far! I can't wait to start!!

I started mine tonight, unfortunately I'm not happy with the gauge. I did 4 inches of the sleeve ribbing and have decided to frog and move up a sixe in needles.

AHH, I'm starting the Central Park Hoodie!!!! I wanted to do something different from socks, not an accessory, that I would want to wear - I went to the LYS to talk about it today, and we decided on this!!!
I had them order the yarn, Cascade 220 Heathers in some green.. I'm so excited! I'm glad to see there's a KAL
