I finally finished my CPH!!
I learned many things...the biggest one being....pick a size and follow those directions! Don't try to change the size of anything while you knit!!
I really goofed on the sleeves and had to rip them out twice to fix, but I think I am pleased with how this turned out! All through the seaming I kept babbling to myself that I would NEVER knit another sweater again, but I find myself looking at sweater patterns already!
I didn't do any type of closure for my CPH, but I am thinking I might try to put a 'toggle' type button on, just to hold it closed.
Thanks for all your inspiration and good luck to everyone who are just beginning. I really enjoyed myself while I worked on this and I must say I am quite proud of myself for actually finishing this too!!

Thanks!! I used Patons merion wool. Not sure of the color name, but it is like a denim blue. I still have 2 skeins left of it. Why do I always seem to have loads of yarn leftover??

The thumbholes are just that...holes in the sleeve seam!! LOL I put them too far back on the sleeve though. I need to learn how to think things through before I do them! LOL
