I had originally envisioned this, my first handspun sweater, as a toss sweater: tossed on when working at my computer or just toodling around the house, tossed aside when leaving the house.
What ended up happening is that I love it, and wore this 100% wool marvel all day, even though it is the first day to hit 60 in quite some time.
pattern: Cabled Cardigan, from Vogue Winter 2007, #19
yarn- homespun Coopsworth, around 1 1/2-2 lbs. 9 hanks, approx. 130 yds/hank= 1,170 yds.
needles- size 6
18sts/ 4 inches
28 rows/ 4 in.
mods- obviously yarn and gauge, I made the sleeves and body shorter, picked up less sts around the neck, did a three-needle BO for shoulders, and messed up one of the cables. The world will never know.
