Sorry About the Photos

Hi, CPH Knitters,

My apologies about the photos. It seems PhotoBucket no longer plays nice, and is holding everything for ransom. I downloaded all of my own photos, but now I have to rebuild the blog. Thank you for your patience... one of these days, I'll get it back up and running.

Just a note

Hello everyone,this thread has been quiet for a while but this pattern is still a great fav,I still havent finished mine due to time and too many UFOs,Study and family but also cause Rowan Tweed has manufacturing oil in the skeins and having to wash and care for that first has stopped me at the moment ,again no time,its not really the color I like either,(it was supposed to be a deep red but its more a burgandy)Ill finish it though as it will be great for the pattern anyway.Pics one day of course .lol,  I will with one change things a little,the other One i did keeps creaping off my shoulders so Im going to use a different size for arms and maybe go up a size for fronts so it dosent gape so much,ill see if it can be finished by my winter here in Oz

CPH sleeve

Hi all,
This is my first sweater and I am a little confused with the sleeve increase.  I was thinking that sleeve increases are typically made on the RS of the knitting but when I interpret the pattern, doing the increase row 8 is on the WS.  When the RS is row 1, row 8 is WS correct??  Also, would anyone recommend which type of increase they used?  I am thinking about M1. 

Thanks so much!  I am making my sleeves first (both at the same time) and will post them when I finish.

A good start

Here's my start of the back of the sweater. I'm using my new wooden KnitPicks Options Needles. The yarn is Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky.

It's posted in the Pattern Availability section above, but in case you haven't visited the blog in awhile and still subscribe to posts in a reader, I'm posting this bit of information I found in the latest edition of Yarn Market News.

Interweave Press, publishers of Knitscene magazine (the original source for the Central Park Hoodie pattern), have compiled a collection of 20 of the best patterns from the last five years of Knitscene, and the CPH is featured. This is wonderful news for knitters who have found it a challenge to locate the pattern in past issues. I have not reviewed the book yet to see if the corrections posted here have been incorporated, but I'm excited that the CPH is finding new life!

This could mean a rejuvenation for the KAL! Are you with me?
