Walnut Heather CPH finished


Yarn: Cascade 220 (#8013 Walnut Heather, 220 yards) almost 5 skeins
Needles: US 6 and 8 Denise circular needles

I really enjoyed making this sweater. There were a few overly exciting moments (like when I misread the pattern and muffed up the armhole and neck shaping of one of the front pieces and had to rip back a few inches), but overall it was a great experience. For more pictures and pattern notes (on accidental changes I made!), see my blog.

It looks wonderful. I have walnut heather in my stash. Maybe it will be CPH2.
