Happy New Year!

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!
A couple of weeks ago , I had the urge to knit a sweater and was browsing the internet for the perfect pattern, and I saw the CPH!! I loved it, but wasn't sure how to get the pattern. Within the week, I had stumbled across the pattern at Michaels and knew I was supposed to knit it!

I bought some Patons' merino wool yarn in a denim blue color and got started. I am a fairly slow knitter, but as long as I can find time in my days, I can get a bit accomplished. So far, I have the back and 1/2 the front finished!! I hope I get it finished soon, and will post pictures of my progress soon! It is great seeing everyone else's progress on this too!!
