Well, here I am showing off what I have done on my mom's seeded cable cardigan. This sweater will be great once it's done but it is a pain in the kazoo to knit! There is a cable cross-over every 4 rows so I am on cable overload these days.

Here is the back, that I just got done on 12/29.

:notworthy: Absolutely GORGEOUS thus far! If your mom doesn't like it I'm sure there are many of US who would be more than willing to show it off for you. :wink:

Actually, she can't wait until it's done! At the rate I'm going, maybe I'll have it done by June (ha!). Really, I hope by mid-March at the latest.

Lovely. That sure is a lot of cables. The color is very nice. I can't tell from the picture...do all the cables twist the same way?

Yes, the cables do cross all the same way (forward and to the left).

The pattern is from the Classic Elite Farm book (#9062) published in Fall 2005.

Here is a close-up of the back panel when I just was starting it, it shows the cables more clearly.

I love how seed stitch looks, when it's knitted. I'm not always sure I like knitting it! LOL! That's beautiful! The seeded cables are cool, too. Can't wait to see a picture of it all finished. Good luck!

Hi Scout, it is going to be a cardigan with a rounded neck. Here is what the pattern book photo looks like:

That will be a classic sweater that she'll wear again and again.

Well, I have made a lot of progress on this sweater since I posted last! Here is a picture of it all assembled. I just have to get the button bands and neck cuff done.

As little as I get to sit down and work on this, I may never get it done. Ha! Actually I plan on working on it as much as I can this weekend.

That's why it has taken me so long .. but the end is in sight! I love cabling though, so I will definitely do it again! :D

Very classy, timeless. LOVE the color. I'm a fan of cabling but understand the monotony of the smaller repetitions. Looking forward to more pics.
