A Work in Progress

The Cabled Riding Jacket, by Teva Durham. Begun in 2006, restarted November 2007, when I realized I was knitting a size too small.

Pictured above: re-knitting the cables at the waist. The knitting was zipping along when I pulled out the first incarnation, thinking I would soon have to unravel that for the yarn. The waist shaping is accomplished in part by spacing the cable crosses closer, which I neglected to do on Take 2. At least I could use the technique the Yarn Harlot taught me, was worried that the one mis-crossed and corrected cable from the earlier incarnation would be wasted. I have finished that portion and am working on the bodice, only on row 6, so the bias slant of the cables isn't obvious yet.

Wow, it looks gorgeous. Hopefully this'll be the one that fits!
