Hello, I'm new here :-) I've been working away at my CPH this week and have completed the back and am starting up the first front.

I short rowed my shoulders for the very first time after hearing about it here, wow, I really like how they turned out.

I am hoping to get both fronts finished this week, will have to see how fast I knit.

My yarn is Briggs and Little Heritage. It's very sturdy. I mean I can just pull the needle out of the cables and rearrange the stitches and slip them back on in the right order and the yarn doesn't slip at all. Definitely outerwear this yarn, but my swatch did soften up after washing so it won't be to stiff to wear comfortably.

It looks great. I love the look of the yarn, the tweedy blues are so pretty.
