Slowy but surely

It's been slow going for me, but that's because I've been obsessed with moebius bowls for the past week! Those are mostly done now, so focus is back on the CPH. I'm about 7" up the back.


I'm mucking with sizes so this is laid out on the back of a (humongous) 
sweater that I wear a lot. I think it will fit though. I sized it up to 52" since I'm afraid the 48" size would be too small as so many people have said it runs small. I want it to fit but not make me self-conscious! I'm also using size 8 Addis even though I got gauge with size 7 bamboos... the bamboo was driving me nuts with this yarn! (Skye Tweed) I'll probably block the back when done just to make sure before plunging forward.

I also did the ribbing as suggested by the Crossroad Knits folks, and have ended up using combination knitting for the whole thing! I love how you can tell at a glance or feel which stitch to do. I used to do combination a long time ago so it's nice to go back. The ribbing does look nice and crisp! So, thanks for the tip!

I must have missed the tip -- can you tell me how you did your ribbing? I hope to start this soon. I love your yarn and the color!

Now I see the link -- I don't know how I missed that before. Thanks! I may have to try that!

Sorry about that, I found the link after I originally posted -- you probably caught me in between updates!
