A Finished Cables and O's


After a last big concentrated knitting effort (nothing but knitting for the last 4 days) I'm finally finished my Cables and Os sweater and one week before my deadline for the special event (Wicked in L.A) I wanted to wear it to. I loved this pattern, it was the first time I had knitted the entire body in one piece and the first time that I knitted both sleeves at the same time. I chose the exact same yarn and the same color that the pattern called for because I really liked the way it looked. Generally speaking I'm not a huge fan of cotton but this yarn (60% cotton 40% linen) was great to work with and I would highly recommend knitting this pattern with this yarn. If you want to read more about it please come on by the blog or if you are on Ravelry I'm CraftyCupcake. It has been great to see everyones projects, they have all been very beautiful, happy knitting and KAL-ing to all!

Thanks for showing your FO! I am stalling out on this project at the neck shaping/shoulder shaping on the first side right now. I love the way the pattern looks, but am Cabled and O'd out! Seeing one done is inspiring!
