It was raining yesterday, so I thought what a wonderful excuse to work on my sweater (Cable Guy from Son of a Stitch and Bitch). I knit an entire 400+ yd ball of Shi Bui Pagoda Bulky...I was working from button band to button band (no steeking on this one)...I had 3 balls and my hopes that I'd be able to complete my regauged design before I ran out quickly looked unlikely, as I had about 1/2 the body done with the one ball, and still had two sleeves and the remaining half.

I've decided to take a wee break and do the "cableguy" sweater from "Son Of Stitch and Bitch".
