Loving my hoodie already!

I am about 7 inches into my hoodie. I am enjoying the Malabrigo and I can see it will work up very quickly. After swatching and measuring I wound up ribbing on an 8 and moving onto 10s making the third size. (I measured 37" around and added 4-5 inches for ease) I can also see that it will pill with wear but I love the softness-I am willing to shave it when needed. So far all I want to knit is this sweater and have my other many w.i.ps on hold!

That's gorgeous! I know I said I didn't know anything about Malabrigo, but later I remembered that I used it for a pair of wool shorts for my son, and they have worn really well. They ARE fuzzy, but very, very soft. They' been washed about a jillion times. I think your CPH be just lovely to wear! :)

That yarn looks absolutely gorgeous in color and texture. I started my CPH in a Cascade 220 teal color, and now you are tempting me to make another one in a variegated color like yours. Ooh too much to knit, too little time. And don't worry about pilling. I bought a battery operated fuzz remover at Rite-Aid for about $5.00, and that does the trick.
