Central Park Hoodie again

I wore my Central Park Hoodie twice and then lost it in the hallway because it is too schlumpy. The wool is Rowan's Scottish Tweed in indigo and it is beautiful, too beautiful to be lost in the hallway. I have unravelled the buttons bands and the hood and taken it apart. I think I can get away with simply re-knitting the back slightly smaller and then putting it all back together. No un-wearable sweaters and no un-usable stash!

Hey, I'm also in the process of unravelling a sweater I knit a few years ago, because I hate the sweater (it's schlumpy... perfect description) but LOVE the yarn. I'm all excited to knit a seamless raglan instead. Cheers!

Oh my gosh, I can only gasp at all your projects! Do you ever sleep?

The bookmarks are so sweet! The rug. . . the sweater. . . and I want to try that nightie, too. I've been making skirts from the Sew What Skirts book.

I'm probably going to regret finding your blog!

Around here we call that perseverence...and I admire that. ESPECially when it involves unseaming and unbinding before the frogging.
