Doh! Then I glanced at your location again! The UK! I know that you are ahead of me in the timezone thing...maybe as much as 8 hours?...but when you post, the time that appears on your post is given as per my timezone. So, when you were putting the kids to bed...it was only 12:02 pm (noon) at my house!

I'm gonna GOOGLE timezones...and see what time it is at your house now!

I'm back! Just as I suspected! You are 8 hours ahead of me! You were putting the kids to bed at 8 pm! My time is 4 pm now...and it is
midnight at your house!

When I visited Switzerland several years ago...job related...I had a dickens of a time trying to phone home when DH would be available!
I finally gave up, and just sent faxes from the hotel desk!

Well after reading about Julies little mishap. I though I would just have a little look at my cabling and what do I find a wrong crossed cable. Thankfully It was only nine rows down so ripped it out and started again so I only got to do the first two rows of decreased.

Now it is 12.39am and I am going to have limited ability to function tomorrow. gotta get the kids up and out of bed at 7am to get ready for school.

Karina you'll have it fixed & be well on your way tomorrow! I find that when I do dumb stuff like that it usually means I was up past my bedtime & was not concentrating.

The problem is fixed already. Your back looks great Julie. What yarn is that again cant remember.

I probably won't have much time today, the in-laws are coming. can't let them think their son lives in total scallor just so I can knit. and I will have to do a bit of shopping so I can feed everybody.

It's cascade 220 heathers. I think it's a little darker blue than the pics show.

Just Starting the CPH Kal
Hi my name is Becky I live in southeastern Texas. I have been knitting for 3 yrs self taught. This will be my first cable project. I am planning to make 3 of these sweaters. My SIL and DD and myself all want one. My SIL picked out forrest green heather woolease, I am starting this on because I can work the kinks out with the less expensive yarn. I am starting with size 36 " pattern, SIL is 34" bust. I need yall's input do you think this will be a good size for her. I am sure I will have lots of questions so I have already swatched and will be CO in the next day or so.

I think that would be a good size, I think the 32 would be too small, I'm also making the 36 and have a 36 bust (38 ish now b/c of breastfeeding) but I have a cheap store bought cardi that measures 36 & so that's what Im making.
glad to have you along. ArtLady is really good about responding quickly unless she's out of town (obviously) but we're here to help as much as possible. not sure if you've read this thread from page one or not, but there's LOTS of tips in here, I'll have to go back and re-read some of her tips. Things I never thought of she mentions in here & I'm always glad to get tips.
I'm also self taught, been knitting for about 3 years too...how much fun!

Hi Becky welcome to the KAL. Hope you are going to enjoy making this cardigan. I am doing the back of my first one and love it. already have yarn for another.

Julie show us a photo of your completed back and your fronts. a couple of days ago you had completed 6 inches. You must be almost done by now? Have you washed and blocked the back while you are doing the fronts, or are you going to do the whole lot together.

I had no time over the weekend to knit on the CPH, I think I had withdrawal symptoms. I will try to finish the back today and tomorrow.

Artlady - since you have used the Rowan summer tweed before, could you tell me how I should block it. do you soak like wool? Can't get the fiber wash? that you recommended in this country, and not too sure if you can get liquids sent in the post. Probably would cost a fortune in postage as well.

Karina I didn't even have a chance to knit this weekend, I only looked at it yesterday afternoon but didn't have the energy to hold the needles. I'm still only at 6" on the fronts. I'll try to post pics later today-though I have errands to run today. One of my errands is to find a blocking board or foam alphabet squares

or a sweater drying rack

to use not sure what would work best. But I think since the drying rack is only $8 & the alphabet squares are &30 I'll look for the first one first. I also need to find some no rust T pins or something similar. And I need to get groceries, mow Grandma's grass (it rained yesterday and was too wet) since I couldn't yesterday & didn't have time on Sat. So maybe I'll get to block the back today & work on the fronts. If I don't post pics today I'll do my best to post them tomorrow. I'll post them on ravelry too, I'm jberry16 on there too.
