Sweater Progress

There's going to be a lot of this over the coming months.
I've knit some on the sweater though, using the 5mm needles and the Cash Iroha. I think it looks pretty good so far. Corsica - 16 rows of cable (The pink is my provisional cast on. There are probably better ways but this works for me)
I'm finding the cable a challenge, but not too daunting. I'm sure that when I'm less tired it will be much easier! Also, when I get my new specs that should help (more about that on Wednesday when it happens)
I love the colour. It's odd, I've spent so long wearing pink and brown that I had forgotten about green, and then I go knit a bunch of things with green in them! (Okay, so just the shawl and this sweater...)

I've also sent off my scarf for the UKarma Travelling scarf. Corsica - 16 rows of cable I'll be getting it back in 13x2 weeks (26 weeks, 6-and-a-half months) when it will be complete! Very exciting! I'll also be knitting on 13 other people's scarves during that time.

Wow! Just looking at that chart for the cables makes my brain hurt!
