Another Cabled Cardi Started

Just so D#1 will know that I love her enough to make her more than socks, I'm making her this cardi designed by Gitta Schrade. She saw one like it in a store; it had a knitted belt and I promised her such a cabled cardi with a belt. This design doesn't call for a belt, but I'll whip one up, maybe in double-knitting for stability. Such a pretty sea green color; the Brunswick Sheepswool is great. I hate that it was discontinued. You got 260 yds per skein and could knit it either at DK weight on size 6 needles or worsted weight on size 7 needles (like here). Oh do admire my Brittany walnut needles; I love knitting with them.

I am sure that it will be as lovely as the EFA, but it's kinda hard to see anything yet. Love the pale blue color, though.

No where near as intricate as EFA (need a break) but more shaping - a shawl collar, refined set-in sleeves. Not even done with 1 repeat of the cable pattern, just wanted to record its existence here.
