This sweater is quite the labor of love. I keep picking it up and putting it down, which is why it’s taking me so long (more than 6 months! but I’ve made a bunch of stuff in between).
The Snoqualmie has been on my list for quite some time. I know I will cherish this when its complete (so long as I’m happy with my seaming and the overall fit). I’m knitting mine up in a different fiber than called for–Quince and Co. Osprey in the Audouin color way. It’s gorgeous and the drape so far really holds up the cables well.
I followed an amazing modification for a drop front pocket on either front panel and I’m loving the construction of it so far. I’m hoping I didn’t create too much bulk in the front and I won’t love the way it falls on me when I’m finished, but fingers crossed.
This entire project has been a lovely process. I’ve learned some new techniques, for sure, and this is my first sweater with entirely all over cable. I’m really pleased, so far, with the results. That’s probably because I swatched this one real good.
It’s been resting while I work on a Ripple Crop Top and a Bouquet Sweater, but my goal is to have this finished by the end of October.
