I am going to start the KHAKI CABLES cardigan featured in the Winter 2006 KNITTERS magazine, pg 88.
to view a photo of the sweater!
Don't be freaked out by the $144 next to the photo. I think that includes the pattern and yarn at this particular website. I linked up with the Knitters Magazine HERE
and kept clicking along to find the magazine and a photo of the sweater so I could post it. I was also looking for a corrections page...but never did find one. If you know how to find Knitters Magazine Corrections Page, let me know. Most appreciated. Nice to know ahead of time if the pattern has glitches.
If you have the magazine, OR if you can find it at one of your favorite online yarn/pattern haunts...you can use your own STASH YARN, which is what I am doing...using my STASH YARN!
Well, I am leaving on a mountaintop week-long vacation at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning...and will be back on Memorial Day. In the meantime, I will be starting my KHAKI CABLES! I will knit almost all day every day...only taking breaks to cook for DH, sleep, hike around to film and take photos.
I will be in a location here in our Washington State wilderness that is considered "off the grid"...aka no internet access, no electricity, no telephone...nothin' but great cell phone access....and bear, cougar, deer, moose, eagles, mountain flowers, wind, air, sun, etc. etc.
I will check back later tonight and see if I will have any knitting buddies for this project. It looks easy, well, it IS EASY...just a lot of interesting design...and the pattern is well written. I will enjoy it.
I am using RY mercerized pure white cotton. I need this sweater for an air-conditioned June 22-24 event. Will wear it with a white tank top and denim skirt.
I love the self-yarn I-Cord frog closure! Amy taught me how to make I-cord via her great video clip here at KH. So simple.
After I get back on Memorial Day, I hope I have a KHAKI CABLES knitting buddy (or two or three or four....)
I have been knitting since 1970...and have many knitting accomplishments under my belt...so you will have a knitting buddy you can lean on! However, that said...in the World of Fabulous Knitters and Designers...I consider myself about a 'kindergartner'.
Have I done a good selling job?!!
Wanna sign up for a dilly of a sweater?!! I sell art real good...don't know how good I am on sellin' someone on the KHAKI CABLES!
Well, I am off to do a art show...be back later...I am 5 minutes late.
