Whew! I just started my very first sweater! It seems slow going but I hope it will be worth the effort! I am using 100% wool and size 7 & 8 needles. This is the first time I have cabled too. What do y'all think? :-)
y always knit lopi sweaters.
Wow! Absolutely beautiful! May I get the pattern from you?
That is looking AWESOME! And kudos to you for not being afraid to try cables. Quite a feat for a first sweater project. Cable patterns can be slow going, but the results are just so great to see. Keep at it and let us see your progress.
OMG...BEAUTIFUL!! I bow to you!
For your first sweater & cable that's incredible. Many, many congrats.
Knit away, knit away
