Cablepalooza

One of my knitting friends has done what she has dubbed “cablepalooza” over the past few years, just after the holiday knitting rush. During cablepalooza, she knits a bunch of interesting cabled hats, thereby learning more about cables and ending up with lovely new hats.

This year, cablepalooza has spread to our knitting group, and some of us have decided to knit things other than hats. Me, I’ve decided to knit a pullover. I’ve been feeling the need/want of a simple, neutral, very useful knitted sweater that isn’t a cardigan. Another knitting friend suggested the pattern French Toast, and this, combined with two skeins of Miss Babs Wowza in Pewter, seem pretty much perfect. 

   
  

wowza indeed! these are giant cakes of yarn!


I’ll swatch tomorrow.  I’m worn out from an outing to the Asian Art museum this morning, and much time with the kids all afternoon and evening. I’ll leave you with some highlights from the museum.
