Hi Guys,

Here is my latest project just hot off the circulars. Now all I need is somewhere to wear it!!! Hopefully it will be cool enough to wear to church next Sunday. Some of the old dears know I knit so they will be impresssed, I hope. The pattern for the body was originally "wedged" shaped but as I no longer have a "school boy" figure I modified it to suit a more fuller waist!

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 


Well done, cables on a diagonal, that had to be tricky.

I've never been a fan of the cable, at least not for something that I would wear.  But I'm seeing more and more projects from the folks here that are changing my mind.  That's a very nice piece of work!!!

 That is really, really good looking.  I like the color also.  But then I think cables get lost in dark colors.  Good Job!

What a stunning jumper!  I really like the pattern and the design has a very cool vintage look to it.  I imagine everyone will be impressed when you wear it!

Beautiful, and that wedge down the front must be very slimming.

Wow, that's really a great sweater!  What's the pattern, what's the yarn, how long did it take?
