After a couple false starts (and frogging sessions) my Cable Pullover is well underway.
I quickly learned that this isn't a project to be done in front of the tv. I'll have to save those Netflix dvd's for the back of the sweater, which is all stockinette (exciting!).
I didn't realize from looking at the pattern picture that there would be so much bobble on this sweater. What is bobble, you ask? It's a little doo-dad made by increasing several times into one stitch, knitting back and forth a couple rows, then decreasing back down to one stitch. It looks like this:
After the first row in which bobble was made, I put the sweater aside and had a time of reflection over whether or not I was a bobble type of person. (It would be easy to eliminate the bobble from this pattern). I decided that I am undecided. So the bobble will stay, and I will just have to become a bobble type of person.
