Inspired Cable Knits: 20 Creative Designs for Making Sweaters and Accessories
Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitters' Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, A

I should be continuing to work on my dad's socks but I'm not. I swatched with All Seasons Cotton for The Arwen Cardigan from the most recent Interweave Knits. I think I'm on gauge but now I'm not sure I want to make it. I would want to make it longer, and add some shaping, and perhaps other changes. I start to wonder if I should bother making that or make another sweater all together. Like Mariah or something from Inspired Cable Knits.

Instead, I have started a moderne log cabin baby blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I will probably be done with it by the time I decide which sweater to knit for myself. I do need to go back to Commuknity and get two more balls of the off-white and light blue yarn (there is a dark blue color that isn't pictured here). I bought all of this yarn (Elsebeth Lavold Cable Cotton) for a mitered square blanket for Stefan, last June. He might not get the blanket I originally planned but he'll get a blanket from this yarn eventually!
