Looks terrific, Kelley. Love the color on you - great choice. Cheers, Jean


Oh it looks fantastic! You should do a tutorial video on steeking, hint hint.


Wow, I can so appreciate the hours that have gone into such and intricate cable pattern! I did a sweater for my son's second birthday in simple cables. That took a LOT of knitting hours! Whew! Yes, DEFINITELY do a steeking video!!! I would never have knit a cable sweater if it wasn't for you, and you have me almost convinced to try out steeking... Almost. A video might push me over the edge into, I'll do it!

I would also love to see you video those steeks... along with an explanation of how you secure the edges... if you do at all. I'm going to be doing my first sweater in the fall I think and it is steeked up the middle (it's a cardigan) and for the sleeves.

Thanks for sharing!


Those cables are fabulous!


It's looking gorgeous! What color yarn did you use?


Oh so pretty Kelly. Awesome job! That's a great color for you too.

I second the steeking tutorial :-)


You go girl! It looks beautiful. A masterpiece.


Are you planning to visit Ireland, Kelley? I currently live in Dublin myself. Lovely place, if only it didn't rain so much. :)


Gorgeous sweater Kelly! I can see that it will look stunning on you! You inspire many of us to try cables and maybe the steeking!


You are looking terrific - that swaeter will look great on you. You look really happy to be heading to Ireland - can't wait to hear about your trip on the podcast.


What a wonderful idea about buying buttons in Ireland. It will make the sweater even more special.
