Already in progress

I just joined the KAL and my CPH has been in progress for a month or so. My progress has been slowed lately by the 100 degree heat in my area in California, but I am eager to get this finished before it turns cold again.

Heres what I have so far

I'm doing the fronts at the same time so I can make sure they are the same size.
I'm using good ol' Cascade 220, so far, so good.

Looks Awesome!

Crank that AC way up and knit away!

It looks great! I actually finished mine *gasp* but it's been too hot to model.

Jill said...

I love the color! Just wondering what size needles you are working on? I'm having a heck of a time getting gauge on my Cascade 220 superwash.

Madge said...

Looks fantastic! Great start, and I love the color you've picked.

LOL Kris's advice re. AC. Keep on knitting!

Christy said...

Mmmhm. 100 degree heat in California. Gotta love it. Bakersfield, here.

I was going to ask too, what needle size did you use for your 220?

This green is gorgeous! And very smart to knit the pieces 2 at a time.

I love the idea of knitting the sleeves at the same time. I just found the issue of knitscene Fall 2006 and will start my CPH very soon. You hoodie looks like it's coming along splendidly.
