Very nice I just bought some yarn of similar colors and was thinking it might be too busy for a cable pattern, but after seeing yours, it might just work. What yarn are you using? I think it looks great!

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

On the needles: Not much
Finshed: Nothing lately

I've added a couple inches to the body now..dang it's going to take forever! Thanks for all the nice comments!

Jenelle and Lisa1216 - I'm using Bernat Denimstyle in stonewash. I'm not sure I'd use it for cables, but you could do a swatch of cables and see how it looks.

vcuchica931 - yes, I actually started it last week..about Thursday I think.

Lana - I just used the increase from the pattern which was a kfb (knit in the front and back). It works great for a raglan sweater.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Wow! I am so impressed with anyone who can make something to actually wear as clothing! I can make mittens and scarves and hats, but sweaters.... Awesome job! Can't wait to see the finished product!
