Well, I finally got my yarn!

I am soo excited! We got a Visa giftcard from my lovely sis, and I got to spend some at the LYS! YAH! Always exciting, right? SO I made the drive and imagine my delight to find ....

They are having an inventory reduction SALE!! 25% off EVERYThing in the store-

Not only did I get some beautiful yarn for my CPH-Cascade 220 Heathers in the Spring Night colorway-a lovely dusky green; I was also able to get Barbara Walker's (first) Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and a Fiber trends Shoalwater Shawl pattern.

So I have only my son's sweater standing in the way to start my CPH- Guess I will need to start faster LOL!

Just keep doing the same thing throughout the sleeve, and make the next sleeve to match.

But when you get to your Right Front, and Left Front, and Back...be sure to read your chart the correct way. It will make a difference on those pieces.

I place a post-it note under the row I am working, with an arrow placed on the top left (or right) end of the post-it note...to remind myself to work even numbered rows starting at the left side of the chart, and vice versa.

Just a little nudge to keep myself focused on what I am doing.

Gotcha, good idea!!! I finished my first sleeve!!!! It looks a bit big (long) but it measures according to the schematic. I am making this for my daughter, if the sleeve is too long she can cuff it.

The sleeves are supposed to pass the wristbone...it is the newest "look"...the "waif" look! LOL!

My daughter is only 5'3"...therefore her arms are shorter than an average height woman. So I made her sleeve length 1.5" shorter than the pattern called for, and the sleeve still hit her at mid-hand.

She just loves it!

Love that sweater!! Great picture.

My Daughter is 5'6 so I would expect her to have "normal" length arms. It may look long because I'm just looking at a sleeve!

Could someone please post the url for the pattern so that I can buy it? Went to Interweave, but the pattern site won't show, it could be my dying computer.

Thank you!

Thank you, Ginny, I finally did get into the site. Had it marked before, but our computer is on it's last legs and doesn't always keep stuff.

After looking at all the +size pictures, I wonder if this would look good on me. I'm 6'1", would make the size that equals a 1x. My major question is, where would the best places be to lenthen it, given the cables? And why, in the larger sizes, does the hood not fall correctly? Is this because of increasing the pattern w/o taking the hood into consideration?

I'm going to start my CPH in January but need to "test-drive" some different yarn to see what I want to use. I don't need it heavy so I bought a skein of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease to see how it works for me. Another suggestion was TLC but Michaels doesn't sell it, or at least not that I could find.

All the pics look great - I hope mine will be as well.

When the zipper was added - is it much different than sewing a zipper in clothing?

Thanks

Mary
