are you making the mans or womans sweater? i love those cables. have you seen Kells in the new Knitting magazine? the cables are just mouthwatering!

Doing the woman's version. It's a very flattering style for the more well-upholstered woman. Am also splitting the side seam a couple of inches for better movement. The bands are in moss stitch and look very elegant.

Haven't seen Kells. I love Aran knitting - maybe I can take a peak on Thursday.

but of course! if you wanted to borrow some yarn harlot you should do that too. i'll be seeing you the following week anyway :)
well-upholstered! i love it! "i'm afraid i am somewhat unevenly upholstered". does christmas count as re-upholstery? lol.
sorry, i have this tendency to just run with a joke til someone smacks me :p

Upholstery is optional - try not to discriminate against my threadbare sisters ;p

of course I meant "I try not to discriminate.."
