Official Post-Holiday Post

I survived the Holidays! I am never working 11 shifts in 14 days again. The paycheck will be great (just in time to buy books for school), but it was rough. My Christmas was nice and quiet, and we got to spend a couple days with Keri while she was here (come back soon!). I have one last FO from 2007 – the Central Park Hoodie. I started it on the 22nd, and finished a few hours before midnight on the 31st. This was a great project, and definitely worth the wait for it to come out on the Knitting Daily website.

Specs:
Yarn: Cascade 220 (5 hanks)
Needles: Size 6 and 8
Size: 36
Mods: None! (This is really impressive for me)

I love it. As I’ve read the sizes do run small, so I had to block it pretty strictly, but it fits great. I found really cute buttons too:

Definitely a great way to finish the year!

I got iLife ’08 for my MacBook last week, and I’m working on setting up a new website and my OWN DOMAIN!  More on that soon…
