Thanks everyone! The sweater really wasn't hard...just time consuming...not a mindless knit but fun. Don't let cables scare you off. If you can knit and purl, you too, can have this sweater.

The only thing is I want one too, but with the amount of time it took I am pretty sick of that pattern right now.

Kemp, of course all your things are gorgeous, but like everyone else I have to comment on that sweater. It's fantastic.
It's one of those things I'd put on the list to grab first if you ever had to get out of the house fast, LOL.

Too funny! But good point...I sure wouldn't want to make another one that size! I'll tell Jim it must be on his "grab it" list

Stunning! Everything, Kemp, is so well done. Your color and yarn choices are great, too. What yarns did you use in the matching hat and scarf and for Jayne's scarf. All beautiful!
:XX:

Thanks!

The Jayne Scarf is Paton's Divine in Floral Fantasy. I just CO 15 with #17 needles and did garter stitch. It is VERY soft and it only takes one skein to make a scarf about 70"

The "hat and scarf" is acutally a sweater! You can't tell yet but the round part is the body and the two straight pieces are the sleeves. I'm just getting ready to attach them all and knit the chest/collar. The yarn is from Italy. I wrote about it on my blog today if you want more details.

Okay ... I went to your blog, Kemp ... and now I can see that it's a sweater (duh!).

I am SO jealous of your yarn adventure. You SHOULD brag! I was in Italy in May (2 weeks in Tuscany)and hadn't started knitting yet, so I didn't go to even 1 yarn store while there. :( :(
