Sweater Weather + FO: Cabled Bibs

Standard

Even before “sweater weather” meant hand-knit woolens, fall was my favorite season. But here in Albuquerque, crisp mornings continue to betray me. Midday temperatures climb with the sun, reaching for 80. So it was with great joy that I actually cast on a wool sweater this weekend — the “Transverse Cardigan,” which has been at the top of my Ravelry queue since I bought the burnished terra cotta yarn in Taos.

And the desire to start that sweater meant I found the momentum to finish the straggling projects I’d decided needed to be done first. My “Citron” is blocking right now (stay tuned) and I completed the second round of “Modern Cabled Baby Bibs” (the blue ones below, alongside the girly one I knit earlier in the summer but never got around to blogging). This pattern is a fun variation on cotton dish cloths when you’re looking for a cheap thrill. And the FO photos are a good lesson/reminder — I’m going to pull up these side-by-side pics the next time I’m tempted not to block anything.

Next up? The i-cord loops and button band for Izzy’s “Finley” so I can cast on that “Oscilloscope Shawl.”
