WIP - cabled sweater

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. :slight_smile:

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. :slight_smile:

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::thumbsup:

Thanks, and you’re welcome! :slight_smile:

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 :wink:

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. :slight_smile:

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.
