...And Now Back to our Regularly Scheduled Program

When I was heading into emergency in the wee hours of June 29th, I packed the Central Park Hoodie, thinking that I'd have plenty of knitting time. I had no idea that due to complications, I'd be completely out of commission for ten days (ten days! The longest I've gone without knitting in years!). But, now I'm out of the hospital, recuperating at home, and back to knitting. I can't work on anything with circulars, since my abdomen is still really sensitive and that's where I tend to hold my needles, but the CPH is on straights, and it's going full steam ahead. Here's a shot of the completed back panel: It's not blocked yet- and I'm enjoying it's plushness. Look at that. Mmmmm-mmmmmm.
I've got the front left panel on the go right now: I've decided that I'm going to do a zipper instead of buttons, I have a pet peeve with the way buttons tend to pull across the bust and get a bit sloppy around the waist. I'm still off work for the rest of the week, so that's some quality knitting time- when not sleeping off the drugs, that is.

i take it back.
musta been the work filters?

what if you did buttons and a zipper?
that way you have the warmth of a zippper but the great style of buttons. autum calls for buttons dude. I bet it wouldn't even be that hard, say another inch or so of your favourite: stockinette! Sew the zipper on the underside and add buttons. badda boom.
