I finished mine a loooooong time ago but I was in the original KAL and never got around to posting pics.

If you're interested, I have one of the FO here.

What's  the difficulty level on this one (and where to get the pattern)? It's so pretty, but the cables scare me, since I've never done them before..eeek!

You can order back issues of Knitscene on the Interweave Knits website. This pattern is very simple, and cables are very easy. I urge you to give cables a try on a swatch and once you see how easy they are, you are going to be itching to make this pattern!

Its been hot here too- luckily it isnt a full sized sweater draped over me as i knit, just small pieces (i finished tyhed back during a short cold spell we had) 

  Missknitty- this is such an incredibley easy pattern its ridiculous, i actually said "thats it?" thinking there would be more to these cables.  It just flys by, and you can be on the internet or was movies while you do this one, it doesnt require too much attention once you get a few rows worked to set you up in pattern

   My progress0 im about11 inches into the first arm- i knit so much the other night my whole hand cramped up. yikes! i felt like an arthritic old woman (im 25) Well.... im off to knit again! goodluck everyone!

missknitty> I got the mag from the interweave website at the begining of the summer, it came really fast! They were great! If you need to order it, I reccomend going to the source.

FrogPuddle> I am so encouraged! Now I really have to swatch! I found this great yarn at my LYS and I bought a bit so I think I will be swatching with it, that way I can get one of these great sweaters for myself!!

Can't wait to see pics gang.... I will include my own when I have a few! Cheesy

A question?

I've been seeing the phrase 'the pattern knits too small' - i.e. to quote a poster on ravelry "The pattern does run small - I knit the 40" and it's just a smidge too big."

My chest is 34" and I was eyeing the 36" - so with this in mind, should I do the 40" instead?

Am doing this in Rowan All Seasons cotton, because I can't bear any wool other than buttery soft merino. Since I know that merino will pill easily, I'm opting to do it in the cotton/acrylic - it's just a better option for me. I hear that it holds cabling well, and I can throw the top in the machine. As soon as I get my order, I will cast on.

Ok, you put my mind at ease a bit Tongue I just ordered the back issue, and I'm pondering if I'll use some Malabrigo worsted merino that I'll be getting soon. Hmmm...

I'm just about ready to cast on for this, I can hardly wait.  I've got some beautiful violet peace fleece.  I've read in a couple places on the official knitalong about knitting this in one piece - does anyone have a link to how to do this?  Is there one?  If it's handy, I'd love someone to pass it along, rather than read through all 34 pages of this KAL!  thanks...

whoo! i have the arms and fronts and back done, now for the hood- 3 days till vacation, will i make it?  I hate seaming, but must power through it!

midwifemamma- i read through all of the pages and one of the people did do it in one piece, and it looked great!  Im not sure which page it was on though, sorry.

Cranberry- this definatley has been said to be knit small, but i just looked at the finished products on people and picked the person with a body type as close to mine and you can tell which size they made (if they dont say) by the space between the front cables.  Im a 36" bust and im making the 36", but i want it really fitted (i also lengthend mine by 2") and i am using lion brand woolease which seems to expand, haha.  I guess it depends on your yarn characteristics and how tight you want it?

And now for *another* all day knitathon! whoooo! (i took two days off to make a kitty condo for my terror of a kitten while we are gone)
