I love my CPH. I loved knitting it. I love wearing it. Do you know what this means?
It means that I can’t stop looking at sweaters and wanting to knit them. Last week, I was running errands and saw a woman wearing an awesome sweater out the window. I tried to kinnear the sweater as best I could.
I love the huge cables on that thing. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the back, though. According to my notes (yes, I kinneared and took notes!) the back had two of the arm cables side by side and they interlaced together.
We went to see a movie the other day and a preview for Greenberg was shown. I leaned over to Lowell and whispered, “I like his sweater!” I particularly like the lines of eyelets on the drop shoulder.
This can’t be good. I mean, I already stare at people’s socks, hats, scarves and mittens. Now I’m going to stare at their sweaters and cardigans too?! I won’t be able to go anywhere without taking pictures of strangers and gazing intently at their shoulders to figure out what kind of sleeve they have.
I’ve already started on a designed-from-scratch sweater for Lowell (almost 8 inches long now!) I’d post a picture of it, but if it turns out well I might want to submit it somewhere. I completely understand that magazines want their patterns to be a surprise, but it really puts a kink in the blogging, you know? Suffice to say that it has cables and the design relied heavily on Lowell’s input. It’s based on Elizabeth Zimmerman’s seamless bottom-up saddle shoulder pattern from Knitting Without Tears. It’s also green.
