I've also had some problems with the Knit Picks cables breaking. The plastic part pulls out of the metal connector, often leaving dozens of stitches in the wake. This has happened 4-5 times and it...

Knitting in squares

I saw someone else knitting a blanket like this so I had to try. It's not squares, but knit in strips and then sewn together (with the border picked up and knit). So much fun and so many...

Yes, you are right about that. I had never seen a center cable do that before! The pattern was really good, easy to follow and no issues with finishing or fit.

Thanks all for the nice comments! ...

Finally finished this sweater!!!

I wish I had finished it sooner, because it's getting too warm to wear (it's Cascade 220, wool). But I really love the way it turned out. (It was in the fall edition of Vogue Knitting.)
