Pattern: Central Park Hoodie
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 12ply
Colourway: Red Tweed 4.25 skeins
Modifications: Nothing major really, apart from adding a bit of length. All the other changes I made are pretty minor (e.g picking up button bands all in one piece). Listed them all here.

I am totally thrilled with how this turned out. I spent a lot of the knitting angsting that this was going to be too small - I was in between pattern sizes and was worried going down was the wrong move. But no, it fits perfectly.
I ended up just putting 2 toggle buttons on - theres no way in a million years I am going to wear this buttoned right down so it seemed kind of pointless to sew on a whole row of buttons and loops when all I need is 2.
This is a 'so me' kind of pattern. I live in my jeans and sloppy hoodies so this is going to be perfect for doing the walk to school thing. Its really dense and warm, I can see it getting ALOT of wear for what is left of winter.
Only one more thing to say really.....LOVE (1)
