Notes: When a sweater, a cable sweater, is knitted in the round, the body seems to take forever to finish. Now that I can see the sweater pretty much taking shape the sleeves seems to go a little faster, of course it would help if I don't have rip back because I miscounted the decreases. I'm still not sure what I think of the yarn, it's nice and sturdy, has great stitch definition, but feels like it's too ready to bloom even when I knit. Somewhere between a like-it and love-it.
