"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

OK - it's a Sweater....

Wannabee!!

Let me say up front, I am not good with "big" projects. Give me socks, mittens, gloves, even sweaters (toddler size). But, sweater...MY SIZE!! Well - I am hoping that I will not become bored and lose my enthusiasm. We'll see.

Pat inspired Shirley, who inspired me. I may have to rely on them for motivation later.... :)










"Must Have Cardigan"(AKA: "Must Do Over Cardigan") from a pattern booklet by Patons. "Street Smart" is the name of the booklet. I am using Cascade 220 in "Doeskin" colorway. The current sale at WEBS made this a very affordable project.

I am happy with the color, and so far it is an enjoyable knitting experience. (How soon we forget those tinking episodes!!) I love watching the cables and patterns develop. So,....so far, so good!!

You are doing such a beautiful job! I love cables. Hang in there, it's a really great pattern and looks like it will be a gorgeous sweater :)

WOW - perfect!! You even matched up the ribbing to the cables - this is going to be a beautiful sweater!
(It was cool enough yesterday that I wore mine on a walk...probably the last time until the fall)

It's looking lovely. Perfect color for a sweater you can throw on with almost anything.

At the speed you're going, you'll be done before you get bored with it.

I love the color you chose - you'll be able to wear it often. It's looking lovely so far. I can't wait to see it when it's finished.

It's looking great! Glad you are enjoying the pattern as much as I am.

I'm watching......glad to see you used cascade 220, I'm a fan of cascade yarn, and not some others.
Don't you just love a cable pattern.
Now I'm off to WEBs to shop.

It's looking awesome!! I've always wanted an intricate cabled sweater, but don't think I would have the patience to finish it. Can't wait to see more!
