thanks for checking in with us. i have just started the sleeves to my cph, the back and fronts are done. i tried artladys tip about sewing the pieces together with perle cotton instead of the yarn knitted with and i like the results. next sweater i am also going to try the selvedge stitch (knit the first and last stitch of every row regardless of the pattern) as artlady also suggested. i can see where it would help. also i didn't block the knitted pieces this time, next time i will though. all in all its a great project, a fun knit. how about you, what's on your needles?? patty

Moi? I've started a summer top, I think it's done snowing here. And I'm working on a lacy stole. And have a few more ideas I'm trying out.

I just ordered the yarn for my CPH on Friday. It's Cascade 220 Superwash. I ordered it from WEBS. This is my first order from them so I hope all goes smoothly and I get my yarn soon. I'm so excited to cast on. I was also thinking of making a CPH out of a cotton blend. Since I live in Phoenix, I won't get to wear a 100% wool cardigan very often. Has anyone made the CPH out of Cotton Fleece? I bought some for the $1.50 cardigan but the pattern petrifies me so I was thinking of CPH?

Hi Clacks,

I am also using the 220 superwash. I swatched and blocked it until bone dry and found that it 'grew' upon washing so I'm knitting my CHP to the gauge of my blocked swatch instead.

I thought about swatching and then throwing it in the washer and drier to get the gauge, but I was too lazy as I don't own a washing machine and use wash and fold services.

The yarn may very well go back to the original gauge after it goes through the drier.

I'm sure you know this already, but I thought I'd share my experience with the 220 superwash.

I'm just over 10" on the back. I really love this pattern and once I found my papers with Grumperina's tutorial on cabling w/o the needle I was in heaven!

Hi Patty,

Thanks for checking in. I haven't touched my CPH, but I did finish the leaf lace scarf that was loooong overdue for my co-worker's birthday present.

I am now working on my afghan slowly and will knit the sleeves of my CPH whenever I feel I'm making adequest progress on the afghan. I am hoping to switching off between the 2 projects.

Looks like y'all are doing fine. Artlady will be back in a day or two, I'm leaving later today. Any questions?
