And I think it's gonna be a long long time...

until I'll be able to wear this, at the snail's pace I'm knitting. But I'm just happy to knit, for ten minutes here and there. Can't wait for winter break!

The yarn I'm using is Valley Yarns Northampton. It's very similar to Cascade 220, but I think it's softer and cheaper. It's a bit fuzzy and the cables don't pop so much, which I was convinced I didn't want anyway (the photo makes it look more contrasty than it really is). I wanted them to be more subtle. But I keep thinking about it.

That's one of my next projects! I'm considering Cascade 220, but I think yours looks great in Northampton (I like the bulky version of that yarn too.) Love the color, I can't wait to see how it comes out!

Emily,
I don't know where you can get the book in the US, but you can order it directly from KH, www.kimhargreaves.co.uk. Lots of lovely projects in there!

This is just so beautiful. After some of my current projects I am seriously doing a full sized sweater with cables.
