Green Cable Done!

This was the first project I started in the new year, but as usual I put aside a project for me to work on many other projects for other people (and some smaller ones for me). However, this past week I decided I really wanted this sweater done before the fall, so I buckled down and finished!

I am thrilled with this one. I still need to wash it to tighten up the seams, but otherwise it is ready to go. The yarn is Berroco Vintage, a washable wool/acrylic blend which I have used for other sweaters with great success. The pattern is from the winter 2012 Knit Simple. The only modification I made was to make the sleeves full length, as elbow length sleeves annoy me.

I love the neckline and the cable detail. I’m wearing a puffy shirt underneath, so it is a little bulky, but with a t-shirt and dress pants, this will be great for the office this winter.

  5. That is a beautiful sweater Kate! I especially love the way the cable runs down just one side. Now you will be anxious for cold weather so you can wear it. :-)
