I had not looked at that article in a while, I also have the design your own sweater book. When I looked at the link it struck me....... I wonder how a SADLE SHOULDER would work with the CPH with the cable extended to the neck line!!!!

Oh my! The saddle shoulder would look way cool, especially with the cable extending into the saddle shoulder piece...however, do remember...that will affect the dynamics and measurements of the fronts and back...and the hood, too.

It would be a math nightmare that I personally would avoid.
You might find it fun and challenging. Not me! I just came back from "Design World" after knitting my brother's Rick Ryan Jacket...and I still feel battle fatigue!

Yea, you are most likely right...... I do get carried away, far beyond my abilities. But that is why my "knitting personality test" said I was an "Artisitc Knitter". If only my fingers could keep up with my brain

Well, Ginny, I admire you for frogging...and making it right! Not all knitters will take the time to re-knit! They call the errors a 'design element'. I can think of circumstances that would prevent re-knitting...but it would just bug the crap out of me!

LOL, DH thinks I'm nuts. I just spent the last hour frogging a baby sweater I spent the last week on. I didn't like the way it "looked". If I don't like something I dismantle it and let the yarn live to see another day.

Hello all. I'm in the final stages of my sweater and have begun seaming. A lovely woman at my mother's LYS showed me how to seam, and her seaming came out beautifully. I must be forgetting something she showed me, because my seams are coming out awful. Shes four hours away and I can't drive over to ask what I'm doing wrong! Any seaming suggestions? My sweater pieces came out wonderfully, I don't want to ruin my sweater with messy seams.

Please take a look at our KH video clips for the mattress stitch seam technique. It is done with the right sides facing you and you butt the two edges up next to each other, maybe clip them together to hold them in place...taking out the clips as you get to them. It is worked from the bottom edge up...and it is similar to lacing up kid's tennis shoes!

and scroll down to FINISHING>Mattress stitch.
