    I’m glad you worked out your differences with the Street Smart Hoodie. It is gorgeous, the color and the patterning are beautiful together.
    Have a great trip.

    L: . . .is for LOVELY, from the blue knitting itself to the passion you express for the yarn, the folks, the place. . .Do I sniff a New Brunswock Long Weekend come spring? xs s

    I’m so glad to see you’ve picked this project up again. I’m excited to see it finished — the color is going to be beautiful on you!

  7. Sarah

    Happy travels.

    I thought you had frogged that beauty – phew!

    That’s the thing with cables – whenever I start a cable-y project, I know that it’ll have to be done from start to finish, without putting down for more than a couple of days and no other knitting in between! It’s looking beautiful, though!!

  9. Leslie

    that color is sensational. can’t wait to see the finished product.

  10. Elizabeth

    Yay! I’m so glad you’ve picked this back up – you’re going to love finishing and wearing this project.

    It’s good to go through all the WIPs sometimes. In fact, I should do that soon. I know I have a couple lingering in the bottom of some knitting bags!

    that is GORGEOUS!

    Oh, I am SO glad to hear that I am not the only one who sings the praises of this yarn! I love Cottage Craft, and despite it’s inexpensive price tag, I hoard it in my stash as if it were pure silk. I am currently making a scarf for my Dad with it, and plan a Rusted Root with is soon.
    I love the way these cables are coming out, so fun and well defined. The color is beautiful too, what a perfect Fall knit!
    Have a great time in Williamsburg, I love it down there. I expect photos… :)

    You did create some suspense there – Why would you frog those lovely cables? I’ve been wondering why this project was put aside, also. It’s the sweater that you’ve been wanting for so long! Are you going to try to finish both sweaters for NaKniSweMo?

    lovely blue and love cables!!

  16. Kristi

    That color is beautiful, can’t wait to see the finished project.

  17. Dorothy

    I’m really liking the colour of your Street Smart Hoodie. The cables are really popping and looking good.

    I hope you two enjoy your trip and it goes smoothly as well as tastily.

  18. Ingrid

    Those cables look delicious. Even though I lived in New Brunswick for 2 years, I haven’t visited Cottage Craft. Thanks for the heads-up — I’ll have to stop in next time I’m in NB.

  19. Kristin

    Love it! Can’t wait to see it as an FO!

  20. Brenda

    The hoodie and cables look fabulous! Such a beautiful blue too. My brain always thinks it can just pick up a wayward project and start knitting, but I’ve learned it’s a liar.

  21. amisha

  22. Marlena

    I love that pattern! That tweed is beautiful, too.

  23. Amy

    Mmmm… those cables look so scrunchy and yummy! It must be nice to be back to it!

  24. stacey

    so glad you are knitting it again!

  25. Wanda

    I’m glad the Street Smart hoodie is back on the needles again. It looks great.

    Lovely cables!

    Oh! If you come to NB, please tell me!! I’m behind in my blog reading, and when I read this I just about fell off my chair. I live in Fredericton, NB, and I’d be thrilled if you came this way. I was a teenager in the ’80s, and I knit a Cottage Craft sweater. Back then they had colours that coordinated with Liberty Print fabrics. You could knit a sweater and make a coordinating skirt. They were very popular. I’ll have to dig out a photo of that.

    I’m also VERY interested in genealogy, history, knitting, fibre, wine… If you do come this way, I can recommend a couple of books for you to read in advance. Cheers!

    P.S. The Cottage Craft yarn is made especially for them by Briggs and Little.
