Back in the saddle

Now that the socks and pillows are out of the way, the next project on the list is finally finishing the purple cable sweater. I lost momentum when I realized I didn’t have enough yarn to finish, and by the time I found more (same dye lot, no less!), I’d forgotten where I was in the cable chart. So last night before bed, I took fifteen minutes to re-find my place and knit a few rows to get back in the swing. I have two thirds of the right front and under one third of the left front left to go. Once those two pieces are finished, I just have to block and seam. There are no finishing details except for sewing on the four buttons.

Now that I am past my knitter’s block, I’m completely remembering why I loved this yarn and project to begin with. The Lambs Pride Bulky is heavenly to work with — soft and squishy, and the inches fly by. I’m hoping to have this done too before the Olympics start and I have to put it down again. A second time-trial?
