I just started the Miss BB KAL on Ravelry (Chic Knits Group). The KAL just started on Oct 1. I am using the Skye Tweed I bought here a couple of years ago in a medium brown.

I really like the pattern - the texture and the flatness of the cables is appealing to me. Love the collar too. Quite classic, don`t you think?
Come on, join me!! It would be great in the Uros Aran or Sierra Aran too. I had a hard time deciding!

Very nice cardi, but not something I would need here in SoCal. Good luck with the KAL

Les-
I would had I not started the mondo cable cardi. If only we could all get on the same knitting schedules...

Can`t wait to see your sweater.

Ya, too bad. I was going to buy the mondo cable cardi but the BB jumped out at me!!
I have switched my yarn choice and am using Sierra Aran in Lichen. What yarn are you using for your cardi?

No, I didn`t see any prizes for the jacket - drat! I haven`t the attention span to knit the beautiful Fleur-de-lis!

This is lovely! The ease on this looks just about right for me, not too close-fitting like many of the designs I see in current magazines. I`ll probably be too late for the KAL, but perhaps after I get Baby Surprise and Fleur de Lis done. I do have some Sierra Aran in the stash!

Les,
I`m using HW in bosenberry. So far, so cool. Your cardi is going to look great. Lisa W made a sweater for her DH in that yarn and color. It was awesome and showed its possibilities. Perfect choice!

I was almost to the armholes on the back of my piece and shook myself out of denial. My gauge was really getting sloppy and it was too big. I love the yarn but it is hard on the fingers to knit on smaller needles - which is what I would have to do. So.........I pulled out my Sierra Aran Lichen colour and started again. I think I`m okay now!! I think I will skein my Skye and give it a softening wash and condition and set it aside for another project.
Your mondo cable will be very pretty in the boysenberry. I like that colour.

gosh I like that miss BB...too bad I`m already into the mondo cable goodness. you will love that cardi in the lichen though...it`s just the most interesting color and truly changes hue with light changes. can`t wait to see it.
