Off and Running

I cast on my CPH and am about 8" into it. I'm using Black Water Abbey in Pink Heathers that I just purchased last month at Stitches West specifically for this gorgeous sweater. After seeing the beginning of Madge's CPH back in person and reading the posts about sizing, I went with the 40" size. My ribbing still seems too tight to block to the desired width, but I'm keeping the faith. Happy knitting!
