Fall Cables Cardigan progress report

This one has been going slowly because I have been working on other projects too. I have the back knit to about 9 inches now. The first sleeve is waiting until I know how the armhole will fit on me. I have long arms and really want the sleeves to be long enough to fit well.

I love doing cables! These are 8 stitches wide and 8 rows tall, pretty easy to do. My mind has been full of ideas for the next cable project.

Hah! That's so funny. You and I are working on the same pattern. I noticed that when I was reading the Fall Cables KAL. How do you knit in the round? Do you think it's easier? I've already made one of these sweaters, and I think it turned out beautifully. I'm making another one, and this time I'm adding more buttonholes. The original was a big "gappy".

I love knitting in the round! You leave out the 2 edge stitches that are used for seaming and join the stitching. You can knit every row that way. I am using a circular needle on the sleeve but I think I started it with dpn. It has been a while.

Thanks for commenting about the buttonholes. I will take a look at that again.
