Cable Sweater

Lest you think I’m just churning these projects out, this sweater has been done for about a year.

It’s the High Neck Cable from Blue Sky Alpacas.  I used the Suri Merino, and a size 7 needle.  In retrospect, I should have gone up a needle size, it would be perfect with a little more ease.  And, I need to add the buttons.  It’s good enough for now though.

The yarn is so soft and luxurious, it’s a blend of suri alpaca merino, and merino wool.  Surprisingly, it doesn’t really shed, and it’s nice and warm, perfect for a brisk fall day.

Gah, my posture is terrible.  The jeans are vintage sailor pants I’ve had for ELEVEN years.  Lordy, I know I’m getting old when my old clothes are coming back into style.

More sweaters to come!!
