knit baby cable sacque

Ahhh, I finally finished the baby cable sweater that matches my Knit Pixie Cable Hat. I’ve been working on it for the last eight months. I’m glad my sister, who commissioned it, has be a very patient patron. She’s watched as project after project was given precedence over this little thing.

I only had to rip out the top part 4 or 5 times before I got it right. That’s not TOO bad, right? I re-sized and adjusted a vintage pattern and now will re-write it to have it knit from the top down instead of from the bottom up. But not just yet.

It might take me a few months before I’m ready to wrap my brain around this pattern again. Yarn specifications can be found on my Ravelry project page.

    Alli,
    I wish you could look at your creations through my eyes. I am truly astounded at your skill, artistry, and taste. This green sweater is stunning. If I had this, I would hang it up on my wall in a bubble frame. This is truly so beautiful. Your skill, patience, and creativity just blow my mind. The idea that I would take the trouble to remove a section 4-5 times to get it right is like telling me that by tomorrow I needed to build a rocket that would make it to the moon. Not happening. I admire your patience and perfectionism though I think those same qualities make you unable to appreciate your amazing artistry like you deserve to. I wish I lived there and could see this creation in person. It is so perfect and so beautiful; and I love the color. You are such an artiste’! Amazing as usual. I hope you love it and keep whisking past it to gaze upon it.

    Love,
    Kathleen
