Cable Luxe Tunic Update!


CLT WIP Side

So this is were I was yesterday. Then I ripped back about 6 inches and eliminated the last round of increases. I also added 1 purl stitch before that last cable at the edge so the spacing would match the ther purl sections. As of this morning I am past this point again. I love knitting this thing! It's not boring and not hard to keep track of the cable rows. Because I am knitting the pieces flat from the yoke my rapid progress is very visible. If I had knit this in the round (as many of the other people in the KAL are doing) I know my progress would appear more slow. Normally I love in the round construction, but this time I am glad I'm not monkeying with the pattern (too much). I have about 6 more inches to go on the back piece before I start on the front or sleeves.

Actually, you are not too late! I bought the pattern a few weeks before they announced the KAL and started the vote. Now that all the errors are clear (thanks to the KAL) it's totally worth the money to buy the pattern - if you want to knit the sweater.
