First post;)

Hi all... I'm a newbie;)
These cables are addictive! I have my back and left front done--- giving the rt front a seceond try. Had to rip back- strted my shaping about one cable cross too late- "assymetrical front" doesn't seem to be part of the description;)
Ella Rae Classic Worsted in color way #46 (pretty true to the pic)
US #5's for ribbing
US # 7's for body of knitting (Knit Picks Options)
Yarn is nice for cabling. And, my swatch softened up, somewhat. It's and not the softest. ( it is affordable) Will probably make this again- in something softer;) I'll be casting on both sleeves at once to avaoid the matching issues I'm having for the fronts. You live you learn, I guess!
ps--- yes- that is a wrapper from a spiderman toaster strudel... My 5 yr old was having breakfast while I was trying to take a pic in the sunshine;) Hmmmm toaster strudel for breakfast... a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do- so she can knit!
