This sweater has been on my needles since 2009. It's an Alice Starmore pattern called St. Brigid. I had a false start and had to frog and cast back on for the smaller size, and then got side-tracked. For nearly four years :-D
Cables are my thing. I love them, and these are quite challenging - five different charts and three row counters going at all times. It's very slow going. The front is on the needles now and since yesterday I am only half way through the first repeat. I figured out that it takes me at least 11 minutes to knit a right side row, and at least 7 for a wrong side. No wonder it's taking so long :-D
The yarn is Queensland Kathmandu Aran in an amazing deep blue that is challenging to capture correctly. This is close, though.
