Pink cabled sweater

It seems like I've been working on this sweater for a while now! I finished this back piece on Saturday and have cast-on for the front. It's knitted with Rowan Calmer yarn which can be a bit slippery but it's soft scumptiousness is worth it.

My pattern called for me to stop the center cable a little sooner than I did. What can I say? I was on a cabling roll.

I'm really proud of how the sweater pieces look so far. I only hope that the front piece turns out as nicely (and that it will fit me once I finish it!)

On another note, I really enjoyed listening to Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" audiobook during my recent travels. The book, offered by Audible.com, featured several wonderful readers. I loved reading this book (around 10 years ago) and some of the sequels. If you haven't read it, consider picking it up or listening to it.

Nice cables! Calmer is such a lovely yarn... It feels like velvet.
