Lots has gone on here since I last posted. Much has to do with health issues, both mine and family members. Some has to do with my 96-year-old mother-in-law who is concerned about what will happen when she gets old. Not sure when she expects that to be; I’d think 96 was pretty well into it. Add to this the general insanity of life and work and death and it left little time for blogging.
However, I did want to close a loop here — the famous Rhinebeck sweater that my husband insisted on. DONE!
The sleeves came out too long and are in the process of being reworked, but given the compressed deadline and my former lack of knowledge about cables, I was pretty happy how this turned out.
I would be inclined to knit a scarf with just one column of this cable pattern. I really liked working with it and feel like I’ve done dozens of other cabled projects since then. Conquer your fear of cables — just knit a whole lot of them!
