In love with Starsky
Yesterday I found the pattern for a wonderful cardigan called Starsky over att knitty.com and I instantly fell in love!!!

The "extraspicy" label on it gave me a scare but I figured I could work out the pattern. Especially if someone else figured that they understood the different sections of the pattern. :D

Anybody else fall in love?

I'm going to be knitting at my LYS tonight and will talk to the owner about different yarns for it. Anything you guys think I should take into consideration when it comes to yarn for a cabled cardigan? Is a lighter colour better than a darker one? Will a soft yarn produce a sloppy cardigan? Anything?

Thanks in advance!

I know FiberGirl has fallen in love. I like it a lot, but I haven't tried cables yet. Maybe this would be a good learning project. I see me in a brown version :D

Great to find others who have fallen in love with Starsky!

I've never done cables before either. I'm not particular fond of most cable patterns I see but this one was different; I love the shape of the banana leaves.

I was thinking a colour close to the one shown but am also bias to purples and blues. Or reds. Or... :thinking: I'll see what I end up with. For some reason I think the pattern will be more visible in a lighter shade of colour but I'm not sure.

Let me know if you decide on doing this! I'd feel good knowing someone else was trying out cables for the first time...

Oooh, a Starsky KAL!

I love it too! Of course I'm not supposed to buy yarn for awhile, not until I have actually finished the other things I'm working on, so maybe I'll just watch the KAL

Cables are really easy, Andrea! Do not fear them!

I'm reading this wondering if y'all are old enough to know why it's called "Starsky"? :D
