Sneaking on at work

It's a boring life, being a secretary's secretary.

So I've been working on the Central Park Hoodie for about 2 weeks now. I finished the back on Sunday and the left front last night. And as I was working the right front, I got an e-mail about corrections. To the back and right front. It was too late and I was too lazy to rip, though.

I initially wasn’t sure about the pooling of the yarn – Plymouth Galway Paint. The persimmon seemed more prevalent on the ball, of course, and without it, I think the colors are a bit dowdy. But it’s working out well. I sometimes to slip or not slip a first stitch depending on if I want to start moving the colors around. I hate when the best color gets squeezed off to the edges.
The yarn is wonderfully soft. I loved using Galway for a felted bag I made, and a shrug I’ll never finish. I surprised myself by picking out a combination of reds, a color I usually hate, and a variegated yarn for a sweater, something I usually avoid like the plague.

I'll try to get pics up soon, now that I actually have my camera cord. I just never remember to charge the camera itself.
