Cable-ishious!

During my blogging vacation, there were a lot of projects started. There were a lot of projects frogged. There were a lot of projects that were worked on, got boring, then got put away. However, I'm still completely obsessed with A Fine Fleece.

I had started Portland for Matt a little while ago, but I knew it was off. My gauge was too tight and I was making the smallest size. The yarn is a little bulky for that slim of a fit, so I frogged, went up a needle and finished size. It then proceded to fly off the needles.

Portland (A Fine Fleece) in Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran
The front and back is done and the first sleeve is well under way. The yarn is incredible (Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran, sadly discontinued). I'm not working on it as consistently as I have been (not a fan of knitting sleeves. Projects always seem to slow down when I get to the sleeves), it is progressing. I left the front and back stitches live and plan on doing a perpendicular join for the saddles.

I have 3 other projects from A Fine Fleece in rotation right now. (Rhinebeck, Ancient Oak, and Amanda). Plus I'm crocheting a huge Babette. So more project and more photos to come!!!
