Team Cable

So um, I'm declaring my intent for the Knitting Olympics. Team Cable it is. I've decided to knit the Cookie Sweater (in Malabrigo worsted) and the Out to Play Coat (in Nashua Creative Focus), both from Miss Bea's Rainy Day. (I showed my mom and of course, she said, "oh, those are easy." Spoken like a true aran knitter, which she is. Fisherman sweaters by the trunkful.)

While I don't think that these are going to be *hard* per se, they will be a challenge, because I hate knitting from charts, and kntting from charts is made even harder when you have two small kids crawling all over you. But I'm up to the challenge.

If I had the money to drop on the yarn, I'd absolutely be knitting Jennifer Appleby's Cable Cascade Pullover from the Fall '05 issue of IK. OMG, I'm in love with this sweater:



Sigh. Exquisite.
