4-10-11: This is such a neat pattern! I didn’t actually follow it, but I just used the pattern for the reversible cable charts. :) Then, I used Wendy Bernard’s method of top-down sweater, to size it better for myself. I’m pretty small.. :)

I actually ran out of yarn before I got to the end, but thankfully a very kind Raveler who still had some left in their stash was able to send me enough to finish it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this website.

I tried to turn the corners of the cardigan so that I could have the cable pattern go around my waist as well. I think it worked out okay! I got a new camera and it takes pictures like heaven. It’s a big change, coming from a silly point-and-shoot. :P

Me and Rachel managed to fill up 2 entire 4 GB memory cards while taking pictures. Silly silly.

Kate Gilbert is such a genius.
