Cast on

Samus is begun. :-)

This pattern has been on my radar since it was published in knitty in Fall 2005. There were a few other sweaters in my ravelry queue with the same gauge, but the other options with cables were all-over cable patterns. I think that an all-over cabled sweater would be served better by something lighter than the medium-dark maple syrup color of my Wool of the Andes.

I do plan to wash the swatch to make sure that nothing shocking happens, but given the construction of the sweater, I don't absolutely have to do that until I'm ready to pick up the stitches along the edge of the cable. Even if the gauge changes, I like the fabric I'm getting with size 6 needles and I would rather do math than change the needle size for gauge.

Do I sound less selfish if I tell you that I finished a baby sweater on Sunday? I just need to find the mojo to make a bib or two.

ooh, that is pretty!
Admittedly, I was working on a bib on the train the other day:)
