I'm done with the lower body!

Am knitting the sleeves while hubby is in the hospital for a total (left side) hip replacement. Too much tree climbing and mountaineering in his past I think!

What would we do without knitting when stuck in hospital waiting rooms??!!
My bags are packed. His bags are packed. We leave at 5am tomorrow!

Special thoughts and prayers for successful surgery and an uneventful recovery for your hubby!

Love the color of that yarn! The jacket is going to be eye-poppin' gorgeous!!!

As usual, your knitting is absolutely gorgeous. What amazes me is how nice your cables look. I did a cable scarf last winter, and there are holes where the cables are. I was told here that that's common and all that, but I'm wondering how your knitting is so perfect!?!

Hi

All of your knitting is gorgeous. Don't know how you do all of it. Do you live at Nighthawk Summit? It's beautiful. Hope your DH surgery goes well.

No, we don't live on Nighthawk Summit. Six feet of snow by now...and very narrow, primitive roads wind up to the 4300 ft elevation! We spend as much time as possible during Spring-Summer, and part of Fall! Eventually, we will sell our city home, and buy a modest home at the base of the mountain. Will spend half our week up there, half the week down there, and ALL of the snowy season 'down there'!

Hey there Ronda!

Here is a great article about tension issues...and it also addresses neat looking cables, without that hole you were mentioning! I printed this article and keep it for reference!

Gorgeous pattern. Your work in progress looks great. I know you are the great blocker, but this looks like it doesn't even need blocking (to even anything out). Love the red tweed.

Caring for sweaters
I've admired the beautiful sweaters you knit and am wondering how you care for them. Any special method or product you use to wash them? Thanks.
Looks like another beautiful one on the needles.
