Checking in

After a little absence from knitting on my CPH, I picked it back up this week (while another project blocks) and dug in to finish the sleeves.

Knitting both of them at once seems to take forever, but I know I will be thrilled to have them both done at once. Also, since most everyone has said they tend to run long, I am knitting them in the smallest length because I'm not a huge fan a really long sleeves. Then it is on to the hood. I was so glad to see the post by Liz T. about the cable going up the hood. Inspired and so lovely. I plan on doing the same.

Question for those of you who have finished: Block before you do the hood?

I blocked first because I sewed everything together before starting the hood.

Your sleeves look great - I love that color.
