Hoodie Sleevie!

I haven't posted in a long while but only because there's been no knitting on the hoodie front for a long while too! I'm afraid it was put into hibernation while I did some gift knitting - but now it's full steam ahead!

CPH sleeve
Previously I had knit a sleeve passed the elbow before realising it was simply too tight. In fact I was doing the increases incorrectly - only half as many as I should have done, Gah! So I haven't frogged that sleeve, but cast on anew for the first sleeve and am now almost up to the shoulder! A few more centimetres and I'll be able to start the sleeve cap - hurrah!! =D

CPH sleeve (1)
I'm super keen to keep cracking on with the Hoodie so I can have it ready for the cooler weather which is just peeking it's head around the corner now here in Oz, but not quite ready to grace us with its presence! I'm also eager as I've never done sleeve caps and set in sleevey goodness before - well, this is my first jumper so I suppose that's not surprising! So that will be fun to do in only a little bit more knitting time!!

I did the sleeve increases correctly and still found it tight. I re knit both sleeves making them a little looser and it's better. I found other people on Ravelry had the same issues. I'm just starting my second one, this one's for me the last one I finished (can't post) is a gift...ciao

I was just checking out people interested in economics and came across your blog.

I write and paint. Take a look at my blog, you might find it of interest.

Hi-- I am just starting my CPH. SInce Spring has sprung here in Memphis, I was considering an elbow-length sleeve. Has anyone tried this?
