(As a matter of fact, I'm working on a shell and shrug in purple Kid Silk Haze, which I think is the ultimate purple color. I also bought some great purple yarn in the colorway 'amethyst' from Cherry Tree Hill, to make cable socks in One Fine Fleece. Anyway, I digress.)
About half of the cable pattern is knit in the round, and the second half is knit back-and-forth as you divide for the armholes. I've finished the back and I'm now working on the front. I can tell where it switched from in-the-round to back and forth but I don't think it is all that noticeable!
A fun knit, a fast knit, and I can't wait to wear it! The sleeves are picked up and knitted down, which I've never done before but I'm looking forward to that. And since this yarn felts, I've done spit splicing throughout...no ends to weave in!
It might be the perfect sweater!
