Cables almost done

I’m on my last Saddle Up. I’ve made some progress on this one and am almost to the bottom border. Don’t sweaters look oddly proportioned at this point? I did a fitting with my son and he’s happy with it.

I think the big centre pattern is very impressive. It’s Cable #119 in the Knitted Cable Sourcebook by Norah Gaughan. It’s as complicated as it looks, but so rewarding to knit. My son is a skate- and snowboarder. I think this pattern reflects that – at least it does for me.

Next I’m going to do the neckband and then on to the sleeves, which will take a little while. As I do that I’ll be thinking about my next project.

Hmm, should I do a shawl or finish the striped V-neck cardigan? I’m leaning towards the cardigan, since shawls feel like a spring project to me.

Cheers, Deb

  3. Hi Deb,
    Your “Saddle Up” and the one you’re making for your son are both beautiful. Wishing you & your family all the best for 2022.
