First project of 2007 - CPH

It took 5 days into the New Year before I picked up the needles again. I was mostly blog surfing and looking for inspiration for my next project. Yes, I have UFO's hanging around but I need something new to kick start 2007.

Remember this?

Peace Fleece haul 5/15/06

I've decided to knit from the stash and join the bandwagon known as the Central Park Hoodie. This is the first project where I actually knit a swatch. Here's my progress so far with 1 skein (~ 14" on the back).

True color - Lena's Meadow

Without flash to see the cables

I already did some surgery on this. After I did the first set of charts (10 rows), I looked at my work and noticed that the 1st crossover (lower right side) was reversed. It was clearly my mistake. Option A was to rip 8 rows. Option B was to drop 6 stitches 8 rows down and fix the cable. I opted for option B. I don't think it is noticeable, do you?

P.S. - Sorry for the blurry photos!

The doggie bandana is so cute. I love your Christmas pressies too, just so nice. The CPH is making progress. I knitted the hood before the sleeves when I made mine, should have done the hood last as it felt as though it took so long. Good luck with it.

Can I ask what size CPH you are making? I have not quite enough PF to make this sweater as a hoodie, but am wondering I could make it without one. Thanks!
