Or otherwise know as B’s sweater.
Both the front and back ribbing are done. Progress to the tune of 2 pattern repeats has been done on the front. Ribbing and 1 pattern repeat done on a sleeve. I had the brilliant idea to start the sleeves at work and leave them there so that I don’t have to drag the entire project back and forth between work and home. There is the added advantage of the sleeves being close to done when the front and back are wrapped up. Thus avoiding the sweater burn out syndrome which I often encounter.
My reward for finishing a pattern repeat on the body of the sweater is doing 2 rows of mystic waters. If lace is my first love, certainly cables are my second!
I wouldn’t really recommend an alpaca/silk blend for this sweater though, the merino worked much better to show off the cables.
