Shadow Cables WIP

I almost frogged this today. I had started it sometime ago and wanted to frog it out in favor of making an aran sweater done in the round. But then I looked at it and figured that I had already done the back and almost finished with the front. It looks good to me now and I should finish it. Agree? Hopefully the blocking process will keep the bottom ribbing from twisting upwards. What's that about?


Wow...all that work! It would be a shame to frog that nice job.

Looks like a great project to me. I sure wouldn't frog it.

That's way too nice for the frog pond!

It's gorgeous. I would finish it now.

It's lovely! where did you get the pattern? And if you really don't want to "finish" it, you could alter the front a bit and make a vest out of it instead of a sweater. That way you won't waste the effort you've put in but won't have to spend time on the sleeves. What ever you do, it will be worthwhile!

The pattern is from a Patons booklet called "Weekend Retreat." Good suggestion on making it a vest, but I'm going all the way with this after all.

Thanks to you guys, I'm going to finish it. I did what most knitters would do in this situation and ordered more yarn. :)

you might be able to pick up stitches around bottom edge and do a rib stitch that won't roll up. i also sometimes crochet and easy edge around and if you keep it loose enough, it can calm down and unify an edge that wants to roll up
