Long Overdue Replies to comments...

Carol M,
Thank you for your offer to check your local craft stores. If you are out and about, and happen to come across a couple of skeins of Lionbrand Jiffy Savannah color...Please let me know. The sweater is still on the needles, I haven't touched it since I realized I didn't have enough yarn. Thank You.

Ashley,
Thanks for you advice on waiting to frog the sweater. I'm so glad I waited before frogging because I found a couple of skeins. Thanks for suggesting I wait.

Roxie,
I'm sorry this is so late and long overdue. Thank you for your well wishes on my knee situation.


Cable Sweater Update
I did manage to find three skeins of the Jiffy Savannah color on eBay. They arrived yesterday. I am planning to resume work on it this weekend. I can't wait to get this sweater finished.

While I was looking around for more yarn, I started another sweater. It's also a cable pattern. This one will take a little longer to finish. I am using worsted weight yarn. Here's a photo...

Blue Cable Sweater


This pattern is from Family Circle Easy Knitting Holiday 2004 issue. It's a unisex sweater. It has the same 6 row cable pattern as the other sweater, it just has a lot more cable. It's a fun project. The only trouble I'm having now is that I keep dropping stitches. Maybe I'm messing myself up because of the yarn weight. The other sweater is "chunky" weight and this is "worsted" weight. That's the only thing I can figure. I better get back to work on it, I'd like to have a bit more done on this sweater before I resume work on the other.

Not Enough Yarn...

I am 4 balls short of having enough yarn to finish my Cable sweater. The front and back are finished, but I don't have enough for the sleeves. I checked eBay with no luck. I went to every craft store in my area and nothing. I even logged on to the Lionbrand website and I couldn't find it, I think it has been discontinued. So now what?!?!?! I was thinking of turning it into vest...now the question is, do I leave it as a pullover "V' neck or frog the front and and make the cardigan version? I think maybe the cardigan version. I think a pullover vest would add to my "fluffiness". What do you think? Should I frog or not? I was also thinking of adding a hood. I think I might have enough for one if I frog a couple inches off the body and I have two balls left over that where going toward the sleeves.
