When I was nearing the completion of the Husband Sweater, I started thinking about the next big knitting project. We’ve made the transition from Austin to Boston, but I’m not ready for the cold wardrobe-wise. I have a coat, I have plenty of scarves and hats but I have zilch in the way of sweaters. The zipper on my   black cardi uniform just gave up the ghost, so I have only a hoody from Target. Time to fix that.

I’m a little bit late starting NaKniSweMo, but I’m giving it a go anyway. I cast on for Twist late last week in Cascade 220. The left front is finished and I’m halfway through the waist shaping on the back. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything cabley. Yum! I can’t get enough of looking at ’em.

    Praise the Lord for Cascade 220. Perfect for cables – what a workhorse yarn in so many beautiful colors! I’m loving what you are doing there!

    I love it! It’s looking so great. Can’t wait to see the final product. The colors and cables look so rad together.

    I know just what you mean about admiring your work. I looked at the sleeve on my NaKniSweMo project like it was a newborn baby =) And it doesn’t even have cables.

    Gorgeous cables. Get ready, cause the cold is comin’. We’re just about four hours west of you in the Hudson Valley. Grey, chilly and wet is the forcast.

    I love Twist too, I recognized it before I read the text. Mine is in denim blue Mission Falls Wool. Now if it would be cooler than 70s…

    Wow – you are such a brave knitter. I would never have the courage to jump into a project like that. Much less with less than a month to do it. And, I know yours will come out awesome. Nice!

    What a perfect, beautiful cable. I love cables. I love them almost as much as my children. And they don’t talk back.
