This is Welcome Back, Old Friend in Lamb's Pride worsted, color Victorian Pink. One whole repeat of the Saxon Braid, plus a couple of rows.
VERY nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Can't wait to see the finished product.
Here was mine, finished -- sorry it is blurry; if I used the flash, you can't see the cables. I actually regret making the sleeves long enough for my BF to wear because he doesn't. I am thinking of taking them off and shortening them (a bit too thick to just roll up for me!)
Carrie, that looks great! I bet you could snip the thread at the bottom of the sleeves, unravel a few rows and then bind off- might be easier than actually taking the sleeves off. You definitely shouldn't leave that beautiful sweater in a drawer.
Carey, that is going to be gorgeous!
Thanks for all the kind words! This is my first sweater, my first cables, and my first charts.
Jump in with both feet, why don'tcha! :teehee:
:happydance: looking good!!
You're doing a beautiful job! :cheering:
That's looking wonderful! :cheering:
Thank you for reminding me about this pattern, too. I knew there was a cabled sweater that I'd planned some yarn for, but I couldn't remember. :teehee:
Thanks, and you're welcome!
Oooo that is so pretty!
wow that looks awesome! i can't wait to see it all finished!
Very lovely! Don't you just love cables? I love the color too. S. in NC :yay:
That is looking great!!! I am considering trying cables...you are inspiring me
I've always loved that pattern but never made it. Yarn color is amazing and you're doing fabulous job!
Way to go. For a first sweater/first cable you are doing a magnificent job! Keep up the good work and don`t forget to post a picture when you are finished. I look forward to seeing it.
Carey, that is going to be GORGEOUS! I love the color, too, even if it's not from an 8 lb. cone. :rofl: You're doing a beautiful job with your first cables. I'd love to do just the saxon braid on a scarf. Hmmm.
That is gonna be so gorgeous! That is a beautiful color and your work is just stunning!
Carey, this is a beautiful pattern and you are doing such a grand job too. I looked at the pattern and it calls for a different yarn. I didn't notice it stating whether the yarn was a worsted or else. How did you know that LP worsted would be a good substitute? Did you go by your gauge? And do you have an idea of how much of the LP you will need to finish it? I understand that patterns are usually there to sale a certain brand of yarn, but I do wish they would state the type or # of the yarn they are using so those of us that have to subsitute can do so more easily.
