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.
