Gathering Intentions, kind of....

I just love cable sweaters, especially cardigans because they can be opened to let in a little air. I had some Cascade 220 in color 4002,a dark charcoal color that looks good with everything. I chose the Gathering Intentions pattern by Fiona Ellis in her book, Inspired Cable Knits

I decided to add a zipper down the front and because the yarn was a different gauge (because I used a US7 to get a firmer fabric) I had to add extra cables here and there.

My desire to wear this is overriding my true knit-yearnings. I am choosing this project over the others just so I can get it done AND WEAR IT.
The back and one sleeve is finished so I may have a FO to post soon.

This is beautiful. I can't wait to see it done. I love the original pattern but I think the cardigan will be more versatile.
