Notes:

I started this sweater on the plane ride to Camp KIP! We chose this for a podcast KAL, and it is a superb knit.
Changes made:
  • I’m turning the horseshoe cable every 4 rows instead of every 6. I like the look better.
  • 10/1/2011: L front complete! I’m SOOOO close to finishing the back.
  • Posted a quick tutorial about dropping down to fix cables on instagram here
