Yay! I finally got to start!

I began as early today as I could (after all the running around). I figured out where to place the "extra" parts of the cables and will have to remember to add the extra stitches later. (The beginning of the yoke starts as 95 stitches and ends as 102 stitches for my size.) Here are a couple pictures. The red dots are the "wheat stalks" while the blue dots are the "twist" -

I hope everyone can see those.

I have to say that I love this yarn so far. It is the KnitPicks Super Swish in Indigo. It feels soft throught my fingers and drapes gently so far. I am looking forward to having a larger section done so I can tell better.

Good Luck to everyone!

Are you knitting top down?

No, from the bottom. I wanted a couple cables going through the whole sweater. I will also be adding at least one cable through the sleeves.

Looks great so far! Can't wait to see your mods too :) That color makes me wish I could wear purple! Yum!

You have just inspired me, I really would like a center front cable all the way up, hmm..I am sitting down to cast on, may have to get another ball as the cable would take more yarn, but....thanks for the inspiration.

I'm considering that yarn aslo, I'm glad to hear it's working out well. Just a quick question - for knitting this in the round, what length circular needle did you use?
