What are you most proud of? I am most proud of actually doing the swatches first, and blocking them before starting the actual sweater. I have always had trouble reading the gauge, but persevered and the sweater fit perfectly. I stopped when I noticed an error in the cables and reworked them - - - several times!! I also masted the Kitchener Stitch, without having to re-read the instructions or rewind! Yea!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the time to do the swatches, so that you understand the cables. It certainly saves time and frustration in the long run. Also, watch the fixing cables video (the last one), after you have worked through the first 15 rows--just in case!!!!

Your sweater is beautiful! What a pretty color. Enjoy wearing it.

Thank you! But, I won't use that wool again. Although it is soft, it also pills easily, so that is disappointing.

Donna, What brand of yarn did you use that pills? After you put so much work in to it that would certainly be disappointing.

I used Debbie Bliss' Fez. It feels very soft, but I have to 'shave' it after wearing it each time;((((.
