This is a little something I started knitting in the car on a short road trip last fall, and promptly put away after completing the ribbing. I often do that. In fact, I have the ribbing of a hat in my knitting bag right now, just waiting for the right block of quiet time to tackle the cable chart! Anyway, I picked it back up in December and worked on it pretty consistently as a counterpoint to my bulky Oatmeal sweater.
Overall this is a really simple, pretty pattern with decreases and cabling happening every few rows. I loved working with this yarn and all its subtle, luminous colors (most accurate in 2nd photo). This was originally meant to be a shop sample, but somewhere along the way I decided it would make a lovely gift for PB’s babysitter. And now, after wearing it to and from work for a couple of days, I’m tempted to keep it…
