Hi I am new here

Hi all

I have just joined the cph kal and I am really looking forward to seeing all your work. Please post pictures :)

I have only just finished the back and started on the left front. It is slow going for me, only a few rows each day, but I can't wait to get this done and hopefully I can wear it for spring.

I have done mine in red, and I have seen a few others in red also, looks really good. I also like to see the colours that others have done. My daughter wants me to do one for her in dark grey, but I told her she has to try mine on first to see if she will wear it, because she is a teenager and very picky, and I don't want to put all that work into a sweater that she won't wear.

So here is mine so far.......

Your sweater is looking great!!!

Looking good! Love it in the red. If you want it to seem like it's moving faster, I can suggest doing 2 pieces at once (like both sleeves or both fronts) on one long circular needle - 24" and up. This has helped me to feel like I'm making progress. (You can see my picture in the post just before yours). Keep at it! :)

Thank you for the comments, give me inspiration to keep going :)
After I started the left front, I realised I should have done the two fronts at the same time to make it seem as though it was going faster as you said, but I will definately do that for the sleeves.
