Ohhh yea I totally fell in love with it as well. But alas I am not allowed to buy anything knitting related for awhile, at least until hubbies sweater is all done. The Jodanna Paige bag kinda pushed him over the edge. So I am being a good girl for a while. If you all do a knit along I will probably be able to join up in a few months. Just in time for next winter.

I love it, too, but there's no way I could make it. Besides, I'm also on a yarn diet. :rollseyes: Perhaps after some of you finish it and work out all the problems for me, I'll try it.

Cuz it's the style of sweater the character Starky of Starsky and Hutch used to wear. It had some blue and soem other colors in it though. I went to Mexic on a camping trip and found one just like it. I wore that that thing EVERYwhere. (I also wore the blue sneakers with three white stripes and red stripe on the bottom) I Paul Micheal Glaser. He's from Newton, MA. That's only a few miles away from where I lived as a kid. I used to troll the streets looking for him during the holidays hoping he'd be there visitng family Hey I was 11, whaddaya expect

Don't be afraid of the cables! Really. Cabling was one of the first things I tried when I learned to knit. If you can count, you can cable. Don't let it stop you from making Starsky, which, like, totally rocks by the way!

I think it would be a great first cable project. Although, I too have more yarn than I need. I still have to do the Hourglass sweater which I have bought yarn for. Maybe Starsky can wait until the winter :(

oooh, brown sounds nice. Yeah, I'm loving this pattern. I have NO idea when I'd get to it tho...maybe later in the spring. I can do a cardigan for the summer b/c it gets so stinkin cold in my building at work.

I read that this got the extraspicy label b/c of juggling all the pieces of the pattern - doing the cable patterns in conjunction with the shaping and what not. I'm doing that to a certain extent with my current cardigan, but not nearly to the same degree. I'd have to create like a map or something to keep all that straight. But I think I'm up to the challenge! Now, what color? :thinking:
