My yarn is here!!!
Ok now that my yarn is here and Denise has sent me my new cords I am ready to start my sweater I am using knitting pure and simple pattern #9724 But I am changing the cuffs to ribbing and the neck to a turtle neck (I think or maybe a crew neck) I was also going to put a cable down the middle but is one cable enough?

Oh, how yummy!! Love the color and I love andean silk!!
I think one staghorn cable would look nice...simple, but elegant...u can see a staghorn here, but it's used more than once here. :D
