This is the OTHER sweater that I'm working on, with its pretty Celtic-inspired cable knit in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, which I think was invented to use on cabled knits. The cables pop really nicely. And the wool isn't really silky, in the slippery way we think silk might be, so it is very easy to work with. Plus, it is kind of a sticky yarn so if you drop a stitch it doesn't fall down all the way.
Yesterday was spent knitting and watching the Ducks win in a pretty nerve-wracking game (that is, until the fourth quarter, when hello! The Ducks finally showed up to play). Then we enjoyed that extra hour of time with, what else, sleeping.
