Some of you may remember that I am in the process of knitting my first sweater. After not working on it for 7 or 8 months, I picked it up again after Christmas and have made great progress. I have now completed the back and both sleeves.
I’m very pleased with how this is turning out. I really like the triangle detailing along the raglan seams.
The front pieces are going to be the most challenging for me so I saved them for last. There are several elements in the fronts that I have never done before: cables, pockets, and button holes. I did some practicing with the cables – they are much easier than they look!
Here is a picture of the sweater I am making. It is the “XO Raglan Cardigan” from the Winter 2009/2010 issue of Vogue Knitting magazine.
I’m really excited to get started on the front of my sweater!

Oh, such a beautiful sweater you are making! I only started knitting before Christmas, but have only knitted pot holders. You have inspired me to try to move on to the next step!
