What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fit. Just as with swatching, careful measurement before starting the project is essential to a good fit. I raised the neckline by 4 rows because I didn't want a scooped look. I also put in one less decrease at the waist.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just dive in. Have faith in the video class. Carol Feller answers all questions in a timely fashion and you'll have fun watching others as they progress through different parts of the garment. I included lengthy notes on my Ravelry project page, including a few challenges, but in the end, everything worked out. I love my Irish Spring Cardigan and will wear it often.

It is lovely and the size is perfect. I am now going to knit it from the same yarn.

All that measurement up front pays off. I kept wanting to tweak the numbers (my waist is what???), but I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks for being a great teacher and for answering our class questions so promptly. I can't wait to knit more cables.

Just check Barbara Walker and add cables to a sweater pattern you already own. Better than paying big bucks for a class.

I didn't sign up for this class to buy a sweater pattern with cables. Let's just say I got my money's worth.

Your sweater is so beautiful! Thanks for answering my gauge question, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who had to go down several needle sizes. Good advice about it not being a race, I am a slow knitter anyway but I am going to take my time figuring out the measurement details.
