Finished my Central Park Hoodie

Here is my first Central Park Hoodie that I started in February. I kept getting sidetracked by other projects, but I finally finished it in order to wear it at Rhinebeck.

As you can see, this picture was taken during the festival. I used Cascade 220, about 5 1/2 skeins. I made a mistake and crossed the cable every 8 rows instead of 10, but it still looked good, so I made it consistent theoughout the whole garment. For my buttonholes, I used the One-row horizontal buttonhole technique.

As you can see from the Kid-in-the-candy-store smile on my face, I am extremely happy with this knit. So happy, that I decided to make a second one using Aruacania Naturewool. Here is my CPH2. I decided to make it all in one piece. Currently, it is about 8 inches long.
