CPH in the News


It has been an exciting day in knitting adventures, since Kathleen Cubley at Knitting Daily mentioned my variation of the Central Park Hoodie (CPH) with Viking Cables on their daily email (also available via the web). The article's link goes to the design page on Ravelry, and you have to be a member to get to the link. If you're a knitter and haven't joined, I can't recommend it enough.

I had previously been sending an MS Word pattern by email to anyone that requested it, but I hurriedly assembled a pdf this morning and posted it to Ravelry. As of this writing, it has already been downloaded 105 times! My blog hits were at a completely unprecedented high, I received many emails, and I've been answering Ravelry comments off and on all day.

Thanks to everyone who emailed or commented. I'm very flattered and amazed. What a cool thing the web is (and what power publishers have). Wow.

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay

Hi Lisa,

Came via Knitting Daily. Was very interested in the CPH as I'm about to start my second as a gift for my daughter's 18th. Love your modifications.

Thank you so much for setting up a PDF! I was looking at your ideas earlier today. What an awesome modification of the pattern!

You're welcome! I had been thinking that I ought to put a pdf up on Ravelry, but I was just not spurred to do it until now. Very fun! Enjoy!

It's interesting to me that the first thing that I posted in my projects was your version of the CPH. Couldn't get a picture to go along with it since I'm not that computer savvy, but every time I wanted to look at it for inspiration, I went to your blog! Also, it remains the ONLY project listed.
