I finished the Mondo Cable Pulli just in time to wear it at SPA. And, luckily for me, my favorite photographer in the whole world agreed to do a photo shoot of me and my sweater. Cheryl, baby Eloise and I headed outside right after lunch on Saturday. The lighting was good and there was a cute little park bench right next to the hotel.
I was instructed to sit down. So I sat.
And I was instructed to laugh. So I laughed.
Okay, so about the sweater. I love it! The color is perfect with black jeans and that’s just what I wanted. It’s a little bigger than I had hoped but I think I can fix that by re-blocking it. And it’s comfortable! The Beaverslide yarn is soft enough for me for next-to-skin wearing but I do have a pretty good tolerance for scratchy and someone else might want a shirt underneath.
I did make some modifications, which is fairly unusual for me. I repeated the cable twist every 12 rows instead of every 18 rows as the pattern stated.
And I changed the bottom and sleeve edgings to 2×2 ribbing. I tried it first as written but ripped it out and I’m much happier with it this way.
This sweater is an unqualified success. I can see myself wearing it over and over again. A knitter can’t ask for more than that.
