Snowbird - Crashed into a Snowbank!

Last night I was knitting away on Snowbird and when I had one more row before I divide the body from the sleeves, my needle broke! Actually the cable separated from the little screw end that attaches to the point, but the result was live stitches flying around with nothing to stop them from unravelling. I got them picked up and was able to kind of smash the cable back together so I could finish the row (and get the picture this morning), but it's not looking like I can get the cable rejoined without a snag. Today I'll be swapping out the bad cable for a good one and then maybe I can get the body separated from the sleeves.

One thing this pattern does differently from most other top down raglans is to knit the sleeves flat. Now you can knit the sleeves in the round instead, but since I don't mind seaming, I'm going to work them flat, at the same time. Then all I'll have to do is seam them up and knit the body to have a finished sweater.

Must have been something in the air around the Carrollton area last night. I was working on sweater sleeves when my cable separated as well!

I've heard that the Harmony's separate mid project. I hope everything works out for you and your project!
