So I started working on this sweater that I've dubbed the 'ugly sweater' because I can't decide if I like it or not and until it's finished that what I'm calling it. I think this is the most complex thing I've ever worked on. It's not the pattern that difficult, it's going back and forth between 2 different cable instructions and trying to remember which row I'm on for the 2 cables. So anyway here's what I've done so far.

What it looks like on


And a pic from the lion brand site of what the sweater should look like



If anyone wants to try this pattern it's called Cable Luxe Tunic.
Whats everyone else working on?

I really like how your cables are turning out. Are you going to make the longer or shorter version?

I'm working on a cabled scarf for my brother, based off of the cables in Knitty's Dashing fingerless gloves. I made him a pair in black a few years ago and he loves them to death, so I figured I'd make a matching scarf.

Dawn,

Your cabled tunic is really coming out well! I love that you chose such a bright color for it!  Love the cables and I hope after all your hard work it turns out that you do like it Smiley

bminks,

Your scarf is coming along well! Love the look of the Dashings mitts, so it's cool to see a scarf version.  I'm sure your brother will love it!

So apparently my mom thinks a cowl is a good idea for my Dad's Christmas gift, so here's what I got:



So far, I'm really loving the airship and the clock tower Smiley

My tilted duster has been sitting around for a couple of weeks now, I don't see myself being able to really pick it up soon, but at least I'm on the skirt part:

Thanks! Smiley Here's the pattern I'm using: http://thea-trical.blogspot.com/2010/05/industrial-skies.html

If you've never done stranded knitting before, this is a great first project as it's just a knitted tube: no shaping!  So as far as that goes, it's one of those "looks complicated" but is very easy since you're just following a chart and you don't have to worry about increasing or decreasing in pattern while stranding.

Thanks!  Grin  I'm going to make the same cowl for myself as well (I really love the pattern!) I'm thinking possibly a dark green for the background and gold for the design?  I'm not positive on that though, but I really like the gold used on the original cowl done by the designer.
