Lace and Cables

This is a test knit I am doing . . .

First up is the yarn that I dyed for it, it is a 75% superwash Merino and 25% Nylon fingering weight base that I dyed with different strengths of Magenta! I wanted a variegated look.

Some detail of the cabling. You can see my blunt needle for weaving in ends, I am using it as a cable needle!

The front, you can see the inside cable for the back, as it will end up having bands knitting on the front of the cardigan.

The back.  I had to dye up two skeins to have enough yarn, so I am alternating skeins every other row to make it evenly uneven!

I am enjoying this knit and might make it again in the future, it has just enough detail to keep you thinking, but not too much as I have memorized the pattern rows now.
