Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series? I'm…
Mondo Cable Pulli
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.

Cheryl’s pix came out way better than mine… as if that were a surprise. (But I got some nice ones of Cheryl, as you may have seen by now.) Wonderful sweater, and highly cooperative model.
I really like that sweater on you! It looks so comfortable…and you look very happy in your photos…
It looks great! I can definitely see why you would wear it over and over.
LOVE it! Beverslide is amazing yarn. 🙂
It looks like early spring or late fall in that picture….good thing you took them on Saturday instead of Sunday…LOL!
It turned out great! Looks very versatile… though I think I like your hair as much as your new sweater:)
Lovely sweater – lovely knitter!
Love it!! I especially like the ribbing on the edge. I did the Mondo Cable Cardi and I went with the standard ribbing and I wasn’t happy with how it turned out because it curled.
The pics are awesome too!
I love the pullover Carole! It looks great!
It’s fabulous, Carole! You and your sweater are a wonderful match.
That’s a go-to sweater if I’ve ever seen one. Nice!
It looks wonderful on you! Definitely a wardrobe staple!
I like your hair longer, too!
You look so very pretty – and a lovely new sweater 🙂
The color and style are great on you. I think that I shall have to try Beaverslide sometime soon!
I completely and totally adore that sweater. I just saw a great sale on yarn that I think would be terrific for that sweater and I think I have to make it. Great Job!!!!
I love love love it! It looks like it was made for you (ohahahaha)!
I bough the vest with the cable pattern a few days ago – after Easter I want to knit something that isn’t a toy. Your sweater has totally motivated me. I want one of those too.
You look beautiful when you smile. If I remember correctly, you have a daughter who is in college. No way do you look old enough!
P.S.The sweater looks nice, too. 🙂
Such a great sweater and it looks adorable on you!
Carole, you look great in that.
