Massive Cabled Progress

Hello my lovelies, I am sorry for neglecting you for so long.  I don't know what you have been up to, but I have been buried in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month -- if you are interested you can track my progress with the little button in the sidebar to your right).  Chris and I have been writing like crazy in an attempt to maintain a two thousand word per day average, which we maintained until last night.

Look how much I knitted on a sleeve you have never seen before!  Thanks to an unusual obsession with the election coverage, I only wrote 350 words.  But again, look at the sleeve!

This is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Pumpkin, picked up in their black and orange sale last month.  Did you notice something strange about this sleeve?  Yep, you spotted it -- it is knitted flat!  This is my first completely seamed garment.  I am finally knitting the Central Park Hoodie, which is included in The Best of Knitscene, published last year.

As excited as I am to have this sweater on the needles, it is probably a WIP you will see around for quite a while.  At least for the duration of the month of November, because I have a lot of writing left to do.  So if you'll excuse me . . .

PS: Check out more WIPs over at Tami's Amis!


  1. I love my Central Park Hoodie. I really enjoyed knitting it, and it flew off the needles as the cable was just enough to keep things interesting, but at the same time it was a straight forward knit. I wear it all the time too. It's great for Spring and Autumn and in Winter I wear it under my big Winter coat for extra warmth. You can't go wrong with a knit that does all that!

  2. I knit like a maniac through the election coverage, glad to see I was in good company. :-D

  3. HAHAHAHA OH MY GOSH I saw the picture and I was like, "Huh that looks really really familiar..."
    I'm totally wearing my CPH right now.
    I hope you enjoy knitting (and wearing) yours as much as I do mine ♥

  4. Oh, I love this cable motief! Have a good week!

  5. Oh yes, better get back to writing :) Love the cable up the sleeve. Seaming isn't so bad; there are some great online tutorials.

  6. Great pattern, I'm going to have to add that to my queue!

  7. I've always liked that pattern; amazed the election didn't cause any mistakes ;-)
