Cables, Cables Everywhere!

That is the completed back of the Cable and Rib Sweater with Hood by Debbie Bliss. The pattern is in The Baby Knits Book and it's insanely gorgeous. I started this on the 10th in the largest size given (4 years) and my knitting time has been EXTREMELY limited with the end of the school year here so you can see how quickly it actually knits up. If you've not knit one yet you really should. I can't wait to choose a yarn so I can knit one for Duder. I'm thinking a pretty pink CTH DK is in order.

Buy a Boat

Ok, not the boat itself but a chance to win the boat.

Duder's school (St. Bernard's) is selling raffle tickets for this awesome boat! Tickets are $20 but I hear the boat is worth $20,000. You can click here for more information on it. If you'd like a ticket (or 2 or 10) just send your name, address, the number of tickets you'd like, and your check made payable to St. Bernard's School to:
St. Bernard's School
63 River Street
Saranac Lake NY 12983
Won't you please consider buying a ticket and supporting the amazing school Duder loves so much?

Just Ribbing You

This is Yankee Knitter #16 (English Rib) in size 8. After having Duder try this one on (I didn't get to have her try on the other cabled sweater in red which was also a size 8 because she was sick and the lady they were knit for picked them up on Saturday while she was still under the weather.) and knowing that this pattern has a lot more give than the cabled sweater, I think I'll be totally safe knitting her the size 8 cardigan. I still can't believe I didn't get to take a photo of the finished red sweater. With Duder being sick my mind was other places. Oh well, like Bran said, it's the same as the yellow one. :-)

One Down

One more in this pattern to go. This is the size 4 which is a little small for Duder as you can see. I'm anxious to get the 8 finished up and tried on to see how that one fits. I was thinking of doing an 8 in the cardigan for her for school in the fall but now I'm thinking maybe a 6 is in order instead.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has knit this as the neckline seems to sit quite low to me. It looks ok when on I guess but...I don't know there's just something that doesn't feel right. Feedback???
