Progress and a Dog

There is progress on the cabled cardigan. The back is complete. I'm pleased with the way that this is coming out. You can't see the differentiation of the dye lots, which is great.

Notice the indications of Fall in Texas--100 degrees, dry crunchy brown leaves.

I started one of the sleeves next. I want to make sure I'm going to have enough yarn for this sweater. The back took about 5 skeins, so the front should take the same. By doing the sleeve next, I should get a gestimate to approximate how many I need for the entire sweater. (adding the finishing amount as well). I have 17 skeins, which SHOULD be enough, but you never know. That probably makes no sense to anyone but me... but I think it will work!

Liam wanted in on this picture. I can't believe how much grey his face now contains.

Take my picture!

These are the two backordered yarn cards from Nordic Fiber Arts: Hifa 2 and Raumaragg. Such beautiful colors. Hmm.
