Cables Big and Small

Taking a short break from baby blanket knitting to finish up this short-sleeved cabled sweater.

I nicknamed it “Snow White”.  It was pure joy knitting this sweater in Nashua Handknits Cilantro (unfortunately I think this line is discontinued) in bright white that I purchased from Idea Studio Knits in La Grange, IL.  This yarn is a wonderfully stretchy cotton/acrylic mix and let me tell you…cables were made for this yarn.

I really love this sweater and can’t wait to wear it.  I am less impressed with my photography skills.  Maybe that’s what I’ll work on next…after the baby blanket that is!
