because my central park hoodie finished blocking on a day when it is in the mid-70s (which is nice weather, to be sure) and i can't wear it. 

however, it's probably my favorite sweater that i have ever made!  i can't decide if  i want to put in a zipper or a clasp -- maybe i'll have to wear it a time or two first to make up my mind. 

i did modify the pattern a tad.  i made the sleeves waaaay longer and the body of the sweater a little longer.  i used classic elite renaissance yarn that i got on sale last year!!! 

anyway, here it is!

Gorgeous!
I like it as it is, but a clasp might be better as I think a zip might pull it a wee too much at the front. x

That's beautiful! I love cabled sweaters.  All the ones I see in the stores are ugly.  I like yours.  Especially since it's gray (I'm void of color). 

Good job!!  I hope it gets cold for you  Smiley

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!
