I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

it keeps me going and going!

Interrupting my knitting to tell you that the yardage on that yarn is blowing me away! Saturday I said to myself, 'Oh, I'll just knit to the end of the skein.' It took me a whole 'nother day to to finish it.



I got 10 and one quarter inches of sweater back out of one skein (247 yds!) of Valley Yarns "Northampton", knitting the 44" chest size on that sweater.




Some of my cables need to shape up a little, and I'm working on that. Mostly the right-leaning ones have stitches that are a little too open, or loose, for my taste...I have now gone to cabling without a cable needle, except for the ones what require you to cross 4 over 4 stitches (see the big snake-like cable? That's the one.) I'm hoping the rest will settle in when I block it.
Onward!

The color and cables look so much like the Knit Along Janet Szabo (sp?) cardigan I did! It's beautiful!
