Finished At Last

I joined this KAL in February and have been working on my sweater off and on since then with a long break over the summer. This week I finally finished it and am really pleased with my first sweater.
Yarn: Classic Elite Skye Tweed, Scottish Mist, 12.5 balls

Needles: Addi Turbo Size 6 and 8

Size: 44

Modifications: Shortened the ribbing on the sleeves but otherwise followed the pattern.
I've enjoyed seeing and reading about all the sweaters created by this group.

Your CPH is so-o-o handsome in that color. I'm still mapping out my armhole decreases, and seeing FO pictures is just the inspiration I need. Thank you for posting and congratulations!

VERY nice - and a good comfy sweater color. The fit looks great on you.

This is my favorite CPH so far. I love everything about it. The color, the fit, the yarn.

I just hope I like mine half as much when I finish it.

Your sweater looks beautiful! I love the color.
I have yet to tackle mine...maybe by Christmas. It's still too hot here (CA).
