My CPH Hoodie Sleeves

I finished the frontof my Central Park Hoodie and I only hope it's wide enough. I put in deeper armholes so I could use the larger sleeves and now I'm working on those. It feels like I'm almost done, but there is a lot of yarn left and I probably will use 2/3 of the remaining six balls. There's most of a ball attached to the hood, about one ball remaining between the two sleeves and 4 in the bag. I will probably use at least one, if not two to finish up the hood and button bands. It would be great to have some yarn leftover. If I do, I'm not sure whether I'll return it or knit matching fingerless gloves. Now, what did I do with my copy of Knit Scene?

I've just looked on your blog, but stupidly can't work out how to leave a comment. Your cph is looking fantastic. I love the blue colour, I've just ordered some similar kilcarra donegal tweed from Eire that looks very similar. It's destined for another cph, but first got to knit my mum one!!
