I know someone who knitted Trellis for the Knitting Olympics...it's gorgeous! I'm tempted to make it myself....I think I'd substitute Shine Worsted. :D

Here's a cabled sweater I knit with variegated yarn...the cables aren't as pronounced. I don't think I'd do it with a variegated yarn that was much less subtle than this one...

I made a cable hat and I have a scarf that is a WIP that you can see here (you'll have to scroll down a couple of pictures). The cables are subtle, but I think they've turned out very nice.

mks22300,

Your knitting is beautiful! The cabled hat is really nice and you're right, the cables are nice and subtle.

I already ordered my yarn for the baby cardi, but your variegated cables are making me want more yarn!!!

The pullover I just finished knitting I converted the pattern to being knit in the round. I fudged the ribbing pattern a little at the "side seams" to get the pattern repeat to work out correctly, but once I got it straightened out, I flew through the knitting. I hate sewing, and have discovered that the mattress seam makes my seaming even slower... I'm definitely going to be converting more patterns to "in the round" or "in one piece" in the future. I see LOTS of dpns for sleeves too!
