I love your version of the Central Park Hoodie. I've been drawn to that sweater before but ruled it out because I don't like hoodies and couldn't think of a good modification. But I really like your collar on yours. I may add this to my knits to knit list if you don't mind my borrowing your collar modification. It really looks fantastic. And the blue is a great color choice. Your socks turned out really well too. Looks like the fit is perfect.

I think they are super cute. I really like them. Did you use felt for the snowmen, or cotton fabric. They look like they turned out very well.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Blocking my superwash sweater- yes or no? on: December 13, 2007 10:09:36 PM
I think a lot of people don't put their items into the dryer because the dryer can really be rough on your knits (shrinkage, pilling etc), and you loose the opportunity to block and reshape your sweater.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is there anything wrong with acrylic? on: December 13, 2007 10:02:58 PM
In my opinion the only thing wrong with acrylics is that my experience with them is they won't block.  With wool or a wool blend you can block your projects and they look much nicer in my opinion. I like acrylics for some projects were blocking isn't as crucial like mittens and hats.

Very nice. I like the collar on your Drops jacket. Did you modify it at all.

I think 5 skeins would be enough. That's how many I used and I barely used my 5th skein. I'm quite slender. I knitted the larger size but it came out the small size because my gauge was tighter (I knew this at the start). I think this used more yarn then knitting the small size at a looser gauge would have. I think Trebuchet on the knit along thread made hers with 4 skeins of the cotton fleece (3.5 skeins actually) and she looks about my size. I easily could have blocked it larger if I had needed to. As for the arms, it is designed with long arms as it's written. You could just block them longer if you needed to. If you had to lengthen them beyond that I doubt it would use that much more yarn. Can you return your unused yarn if you had any? Its always hard to say for sure how much you'll use when you substitute. I thought I was only going to use 4 skeins and ended up having to order one more to finish.
