A swatchin' I will go
























I knit a swatch last night for this sweater. I loved this sweater the first time I saw it, I love the cables...I am finally not intimidated by the pattern, after knitting many patterns from charts, I am ready to tackle this one! I am using some Tahki Donegal Tweed from my stash in this yellowish-greenish color yarn with yellow and brown flecks of color (color #838, discontinued)! The yarn is a little thin at times, kind of like Noro's silk garden, but I think it will be the perfect yarn for this sweater! It is not too bulky, will be kind of airy. I am going to try it and see. The gauge is a little off, but I think it will be o.k. if I knit the 38 1/2. We will see.

Looks like you've got the tweed bug, too! That is a really pretty color...very unique and will look gorgeous knit up into that cable-y sweater!
