FO: cable yoke sweater
I cast on for this pink sweater on Monday afternoon and finished late Thursday. Aren't short sleeves much faster?! 'Sorry for the fuzziness and bad lighting.

It's a pattern from the Spring issue of Cast On done in KP Sierra (Wild Rose color). This was a fun straightforward knit -- no crazy stuff. I did combined knitting on the 2x2 ribbing at the waist and hips. 'Seems to help, although it's not fluid IMHO. Then again, doing more than 1 inch of ribbing is torture to me no matter what method I use! :rollseyes: It's the constant moving back and forth with the yarn...

Now I'm going to continue working on the KP Sunset Pullover in KP Vacation (Ocean color). This yarn is very comfortable! So far I have just 3 inches of one sleeve done. :XX:

That is simply gorgeous!!

And it fits you just perfectly!

Where can I find out more about "combined knitting?" I have some ribbing coming up in a couple of projects and I'm always open to new techniques.
