I just joined the CPH Knit Along - I broke down and bought the yarn over the weekend as a b-day gift to myself. I've got Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed in a grey blue (pictures to come later). Fortunately, I work at a yarn store part-time, so I got a little discount. On the other hand, working at a yarn shop DOES NOT SAVE YOU MONEY.

I've started on the back and have shortened the length (in the ribbing) by 1/2 an inch. I've got plans to knit the 14" sleeves, despite the fact that I'm making the 36. So I decreased as if I were knitting the 14" sleeves and am praying that it doesn't make it to narrow. I also have a grandiose idea of adding little slant pockets to the front.

I totally agree, I work part time at a yarn store and I might as well just hand back my check :)
I LOVE the color you're chosen, nice work!
