Cabled Spiral Pullover

So I'm finally getting around to blogging about my NaKniSweMo Sweater. It was finished on December 6th. I've worn it quite a bit - it's now one of my favorite sweaters.



Pattern: Cabled Spiral Pullover from Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Rowanspun DK, mist, about 5-1/3 skeins
Needles: US 5 (3.75 mm)
Modifications: Added waist shaping.



This was a great pattern, very easy to follow and of course, yoked sweaters are always enjoyable. The yarn was pretty good. I discovered during seaming though that it's also very delicate - if you pull too hard it will break. I have to be careful taking it off to not snap the seams (yes, I did that the first time I took it off!). Overall, this is a great sweater and I'm very happy with it.
