I'm Back and improved!

The last time I was here I had posted about the problems I was haveing with my hoodie and not having enough yarn to knit it. The sales rep for that sold Tahki yarn to my local yarn store even searched high and low for more of my colorway but no luck. So I finally decided that I would use that yarn for a short sleeve sweater in the future and buy totally new yarn to knit the CPH. I decided to use the same type of yarn (Tahki New Tweed) The color is gorgeous brown with pink, cream, maroon, black flecks in it. So here is the start of a swatch I did today because of course I forgot what size needle I was using (I have since started the sweater):

I am so excited to get back to knitting this sweater. Yay me!!!
