The Beginnings of CPH
I am about 8″ into it and have 6″ more before I start the underarm shaping. My right cable looks a bit wonky, but I have checked and double-checked that it’s turned corrrectly. It may be the Black Water Abbey, since it’s a bit rough and grippy. Hopefully it’ll block out fine. I’m on a bit of a break from this right now, until I can finish my March sock for SAM 3. Just my luck; I’ll spend all of March working on one pair of socks on size 1 needles. Now I remember why I like making footies on worsted weight yarn. Here’s a close up picture of the double cable running up the back. I like this picture because I think it shows the texture of the yarn and cables really well. Madge and Marie are also making CPHs and are way farther along than I. Be sure to check theirs out.
Tricky Tricot blogged about this tremendous yarn sale at Knit Happens Online. Like a fool, I had to go and check it out. Hours later, I have purchased waaaaay too much yarn, but who can resist deals like Cascade 220 for $3 a skein (especially when the Fitted Knits book features some rockin’ sweaters made from this yarn?), Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky for $3 a ball, Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk for less than $4 a ball, Koigu KPPPM for $4.50 a skein. Oops, did I just tell you everything I purchased? Well, I might be holding out on a couple of yarns, but it’s definitely worth checking it out.
Wait! Before you click on their site, I have to give you some navigational advice. Be sure to click on the second Yarn button on the left hand bar. Then, you can select how you want to have the yarn presented to you by brand, weight, or gauge. Then you’ll see all of the yarns. If you just click on the What’s New Yarn, you’ll only see a couple of yarns. It’s kind of hard to navigate this site, but I know you can do it. I also know you can give me a run for my money when it comes to buying yarn. Be sure to let me know what you got!
