Hello out there

Is anybody still working on finishing this sweater? I am. It is gotten to the painful stage. I am trying to finish the yoke, however I keep getting is a "yoke".."joke" many projects and so little time. I did not like the bottom edge and cut off the ribbing and redid the bottom. Taking a scissor to knitting is very scary. It was a first for me. But I did it. Now just to finish the yoke.

Back done!

I finished the back yesterday. I hope I will finish the front by tomorrow. The fabric is kind of loose, though my gauge is spot on. I guess I'll see if it looks ok when it is finished.

Finally started!

Hello! I'm Elizabeth, and I finally started my Wheat-Ear Cable Yoke Pullover this weekend. I'm making it out of's Incense in Capri. I'm making the 35" size.

Here is what I've done thus far:

Am I alone?

Is anybody but me still working on this lovely sweater?

I'm knitting this one in the round, instead of in two panels, but must have forgotten a row of increases along the way, because I've started to cable, and don't have the right number of stitches to divide the pattern nicely! I'm going to try to fudge it, but I've threaded a lifeline around the changed stitches and may end up frogging it back to the stockinette and then trying again.

No picture posted because there's nothing too spectacular to show.

Finally Done!

Yay me! I finally finished it. It is a lot looser on the top than I expected so I'm thinking about putting a ribbon through it, or something. The yarn (Swish Superwash from KnitPicks) is incredibly soft after I washed it. I will be using this yarn again.

A Front & A Back

With 2 pieces done, I'm sure that the sleeves will fly by once I start them. As I rush to finish a pair of socks, I don't think it will be until next week that I get back to this sweater.

My goal is to wear this on Thanksgiving Day. I think the colors are perfect for the holiday.
