A brief introduction

Good morning fellow CPH knitters!

I've just joined you, and the picture is the sweater -- ok, I can see the sweater there anyway.

Every year for the past 7 years I have knit my daughter a sweater for Christmas. (A tradition begun when she went to college in a cold climate)

Last year I knit her the Arwen Cardigan in response to her request for something suitable to wear to the office (HR department in a school district) but that had the style feel of a hooded sweatshirt. I did a few design changes to that sweater (added a band of cable around the bottom to make it longer, knit the fronts and back all of a piece and added a zipper).

This year's selection will be the CPH!!

I'm using Caron's Simply Soft Tweed (my daughter can not wear wool), and I'm knitting in black (under a VERY good light, I might add!)

The box arrived last Thursday, and right now I'm about half way into the ribbing around the bottom -- fronts and back being knit all in one.

I'm looking forward to sharing my work, and seeing what all of you are doing!
