Look, Ma! I Can Do Cables!

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.

  1. 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!
