Breakthrough

I finally have this cabled trim licked.  I was paying too much attention to those Helpful Hints included with pattern.  They weren't. Here I am almost up to the center bind off.


  It seems to be  taking a lot longer than usual to knit what should be a small section of the sweater. And a surprising amount of yarn.
But don't the short rows make a nice job of that pocket curve?

I love the magic of short row shaping. I can't wait to see this all put together!

I do not know how to knit, so this is totally impressive to me. Love the color. Had to laugh at your comment about the (un)helpful hints!

That is wonderful work!

Rudee - I can't wait either. I'm just motoring along right now.

Lindy - thank you, I love the color, too - and the yarn. I haven't gotten tired of the way the bamboo makes it shine.

Carletta - thank you. It's been an interesting challenge.

Looks great, a lot of work with all those cables but worth it.
