I can't stop.....I'm twisted... in the cabling sense, anyway;)

CPH #2 is coming along even quicker. I cast on Last Monday. (I think) Fronts and back are done- cast on sleeves last night. For me- matching mirrored pieces (fronts, sleeves) 2 at a time is the way to go!
Using Cascade Sierra-
80 % pima cotton 20 wool
Color- Raspberry
US #8's (5 for ribbing)
Planned mods:
Am knitting pieces 2 at a time. (I'm keeping my 2 "cakes" of Sierra in a zip-lock- pulling from the center- then each time I switch - I turn the bag to keep them from twisting together.)
I will be continuing the cable up the back of the hood. (have to find that post;)
I will be knitting the button band in one piece to eliminate the little seam at the top center of the hood.

Wow! Your needles must be smoking! It looks beautiful! How is that yarn to knit with? It sounds like a good yarn for a summer CPH.

the sierra is nice- can be a tiny bit splitty. fine with addi's and the Holz N Steins I've been using. I think it'sperfect for summer eve- early morning wear... crossing my fingers anyway!

Not as rough on the hands as pure cotton- a nice knit;)
