This is a progress pic from earlier last night - sorry about the bad lighting! I have now finished the right front and gotten a couple of pattern repeats into the hood. I hope to finish the hood tonight so I can begin picking up the bazillion stitches for the edging... yes, that's my least favourite bit.

I know it looks very slender in this pic - that's because the sleeves have been blocked and the body is still a bit curly  Cheesy

Looks great, Keletubbie! I need to get back on the horse, I haven't touched mine in months. It's the seaming. Grrr.

This makes me want to get back to work on mine too!  I seem to have TOO many projects for others that are getting put ahead of this one (all for good reasons).  Still, I'm ready to get this done - midway through the hood now!

Aww, thanks guys!

I am 5 inches into the hood now - I have even organised a work knit-a-long to buy me extra time to complete it... will the yarn last?

I just found some pretty dark red Cascade 220 on sale and bought it with the intention of knitting this hoodie.  I'm dreading casting on, though...the gauge is way off.   I'm sure I can figure it out, though!

I am using Cascade 220 (quatro, I think) and my stitch gauge was pretty close.  Also, the advice on the KAL on blogger was to go up a size since it's sized fairly small.

Oh no!  I just finished the left front (back is already done), and I was worried that it was going to be too small!  Oh well, guess I'll have to bite the bullet on this one.  I don't think i'd wear it closed anyway.

I'm using Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride in Oak, and it's knitting up wonderfully.  Great stitch definition on the cables.  I can tell it's going to be super warm!

Since it seems others are still hard at work on this, I'd like to join.

I'm working on the back and both sleeves at once on size 8 circulars.
The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8 in Blue #23.

Did anyone extend the length of the back, and if so, what other adjustments should be made to accomodate the additional inches?  Can I just extend the two front pieces by the same # of inches and call it good? (I intend to add about an 1 or so the sleeves as well).

Just want to be sure there isn't some math I'm missing... Undecided

Thanks!

I also lengthened mine by an inch or so, and yes, you just have to make sure you lengthen the front pieces by the same amount as the back pieces.  This is probably obvious, but make sure to add the length before the armpit shaping.  Actually, when I knit my back piece, I made a note in the pattern of how many cable repeats and how many rows past the last repeat I had knit before I did the armpit shaping, so that when I knit the front pieces, I knew to knit the same amount of cable repeats before the shaping happened.  This ensured that the fronts and back were the exact same length.

I'm so glad others are still working on this project. I just ordered Wool of the Andes in grass and am eagerly awaiting its arrival so I can get started.
