Its time to go back into my knitting history. I thought I'd do all my cabled things before moving on to something else. This is Cafe Bastille Cables from Interweave Knits. Its in a Fall issue, 2003 I think. Also in this issue is the DNA scarf, which was my first adventure in cables. I don't have a picture because I gave it to my dad though. The sweater is on the cover if that helps. I made this from Lamb's Pride Bulky in Blue Blood Red - gross color name, great color. I just love this sweater. I really enjoy knitting cables and with a yarn this bulky it's a really fast knit too. Of course this also means that I can wear this sweater on any Arctic expedition and not need to wear a hat. Its always important to have clothing ready for Arctic expeditions, you never know when National Geographic will recognize your photographic excellence (Virginia Carpet Dolphins anyone?). One more cabled adventure tomorrow, then who knows?

Beautiful Sweater Melanie! I love the color even if it is a gross name :) I am working myself up to start something with cables as I love the look of them.

Spectacular! I've been working up to knitting this pattern for a while. I'm going to start it tonight in Cascade 128 Tweed in charcoal. It'll be the first sweater for my husband (married last month). Any pointers?
