Can't believe this is so easy!!!

This is my first sweater project, and my first Cable project as well. I can't believe that I am actually making a sweater, and not getting bored. This pattern is very easy to follow. I am using Cascade 220 yarn. I think that it is much softer than the Donegal Tweed, and more affordable as well. And I absoluely love this color. This is a picture of the back piece. So, now it is on to the armhole shaping. Will post more pics later.
I must apologize for waiting so long to post. I have been sidetracked, because I had to make 3 hats for relatives, and one for Charity after I started this one. New York is brutally cold right now, so I felt an obligation to get the hats done.... so now I can fully focus on the sweater in the weeks to come. Ahem, that means finally focus on ME!!!!!! We all have to find time to treat ourselves, even if we are kindhearted and do nice things for other people. It's sad that I knit so much and only have pictures. This sweater will be my "live" masterpiece. LOL!!
