Cables, Cables, Everywhere!

Yep, I cast on Vivian once I finished the hat the other day. I've been wanting to knit this cardigan ever since I first saw it in Twist Collective, but at the time, I was in the process of still losing weight. Now that I'm in the process of maintaining my weight, I decided it was time to make the super cabled sweater.

I cast on the sweater on Monday. I'm now on the fifth ball and 69 rows into the back of the sweater. It's flying off my needles right now and it made me remember how much cables are like potato can't just make one. Every time I finish a twist row, I think, ah, I can do one more cable repeat, right? I'm about a third of the way done with the back now and I can't wait to work on it again. Here's what it looks like so far:I'm in love with the pattern, the cables, and the yarn. Yarn is Lana Gatto English Tweed in a denim blue colorway. The tweedy specks are all ranges of colors, which I also like. It adds some textural interest in there other than the massive amount of cabling and seed stitch.

That's it for today. I want to get back to knitting the sweater :oP

Knit on...

That's going to be pretty!

Congrats on reaching the weight goal! That must have been a very empowering feeling, the day you got on the scales and hit target :-)
