Almost done!

The finish line is in sight for my Arwen - I've got about 9" of the hood, so only 4" and the grafting to go:

I'm not a big fan of finishing, so I decided to seam it all up and knit the hood in one piece. All the ends are woven in and I sewed the hem in place, so once I graft the hood seam, I'm done!

I'm giving this sweater to a friend when I visit her next week, so I'll (hopefully) post some finished shots of her wearing it after that.

Your Arwen is beautiful, congratulations! I am knitting my fronts and back at the same time to avoid seams. Have you blogged anywhere about your hood? I'd be interested.

The thing I'm most impressed with is the edges on the cable areas--looks PERFECT!

Wow, that looks terrific! The yarn really shows off the cable beautifully!

Thanks for the nice comments. I'll be writing up a blog entry on this sweater next week, where I'll give details on the mods I made, including how I knit the hood. I'll post here too, of course, once I've got some finished shots.
