pattern, schmattern.

I've been working away on my Front and Back Cable Sweater. (Did I mention that I am also super creative at naming things?) Using Rowan Cashsoft DK is dreamy, especially after working with Elann Sonata for so long on my Summertime Tunic. I've tried the sweater on several times and I'm pretty excited about how it's turning out. The cable chart is easy to memorize and I'm just working out the shaping as I go along. It's making me wonder why I'd ever knit a sweater any other way.

Edit: The pattern is from Gedifra Highlights 033, but it was a mess, so I'm knitting top-down. The only thing I'm using from the pattern is the cable chart.

I love the combination of the two cable patterns. Grey is the perfect color for fall, too!
