Hi, My names is Lyndsey-Jane (bagpuss on Ravelry) and I have just cast on for the CPH. Thanks for letting me join the KAL. I have knit a few sweaters/cardigans in the past but most recently they have all been top down raglans - so no seaming. I am also thinking about putting a zipper in. I am using Rowanspun Aran in Caviar. So far I have completed the ribbing and one repeat of the charts on the back and really like the look of it. I have come to a stand still as I have been using my 5mm straights as I don't have a 5mm circ needle but I have bad joints and am finding it too heavy to knit comfortably on the straights. I plan on ordering the circs over the weekend so should be back in action early next week. I will take photos over the weekend so show. Feel free to friend me on Ravelry is your are over there.

Welcome to the KAL!

Sorry to hear about the discomfort, I get that too. I knit everything on circ's now days.
