The CPH, she is finished!

Finished on January 27th.

I only used 7 skeins of the Tahki tweed. I wrote previously about my gauge problem (a bit loose), but all in all, I'm pleased. I wanted it to be an outdoorsy kind of sweater, and it will be. I should have made a size smaller - I guess I made it for the size I was last year.

It was a great fast knit, and I'm definitely consider making another, more fitted version.

I have a picture of the back on my blog, if you'd care to look.

Very nice! I checked out your blog...it's so cold here, isn't it? I'm in Madison, WI and it's amazingly cold. Yesterday the public schools were closed due to cold for the first time in 13 years.
