Mock Cables Finale

Project:  Mock Cables 真淑女
Pattern
 High-Low Peplum Pullover by Sandy Cushman,  Interweave Knits, Spring 2001 
Yarn
 Karabella Majestic 
Yardage:  
 1240 yards in stash (could have used a few more yards on the neckline)
Needles: Size 7
Cast on: January 26, 2012 

Cast off: March 18, 2012
Cost: estimate $40. The yarn was on sale at Stitches. I don't remember buying it, but I wouldn't have paid more.
Previous entries: here, here, and here
Notes: The neckline came out much lower than I planned as I was running out of yarn, I think it looks fine. I still want to add something in the center diamonds, but it's a pretty busy all over pattern, adding more to it might just be too much. I wore it Thursday evening to a concert at our local high school (Henry's music instructor plays in the band), and it was quite warm and comfortable, and pretty too, so I should leave good enough alone.

Love me some spring colors
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blogTami's blog, and leave me a comment!

As always, your knitting is so inspiring. I love all of those cables. Now that I am learning how to knit cables and mock cables, I wonder why I was so scared of them. I love the color too.

I think the neckline is perfect as it is.

Flattering color, flattering cut.

Oh wow! It's finished! This is such a lovely sweater, completely worth the time. I actually really like the neckline the way it came out. I cannot imagine it looking any other way. I cannot believe how inexpensive the yarn was, it looks like it was nice to work with.
