Finally I knit something for myself!  and i LOVE it

Patons Classic Merino Wool
Noro Kureyon
Top Down Raglan http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/topdown.guest.cfm
 it took one month. could have been less but i got to dog sit and they need alot of attention!!  i was glad to give the attention though. no complaints!

These pictures were taken while hanging out on those rocks, more for the surroundings with a small bit of it being for the hoodie.

front has a pouch and the sleeves, hood and bottom is all hemmed

The back has a fun patch that i bought forever ago and never got around to using. it works wonderfully on the sweater!

Thumb hole and you can see the hem poking through

and for those who want to look...
close up of the pouch i knitted onto the sweater. the only seaming/sewing i did on the sweater was all the hemming and the top of the pouch.
i have never really done this before so i was learning as i go so one of the sides isnt as pretty. i couldnt figure out how to neatly knit the stitches together...
oh and it is evenly sewn across just laying crooked!  i swear!

And this is a picture of the neck/start of hood shaping. i dont know if you can tell from the pics but the hood has a longer neck part. dont really know what it is called. anyways. the shaping is nice.

thanks for looking!  ask any questions if you got em!

Beautiful! And what a great way to have a Noro sweater without paying hundreds of dollars. The color combination is fantastic. I love your thumb hole too Smiley
