This is a sweater I am knitting for my dear friend Taylor. He lives in the PNW and, I think can wear this pattern well.
I found the pattern in the summer 2003 edition of "Knitter's Magazine." It was designed for a cotton knit, but I decided to use this beautiful bronze tweed instead. I think the wool suits the fish-tail cable pattern better, and of course is more useful for the damp and cool days of Vashon Island.
I started this project a couple years ago. Taylor has been very patient waiting for the finished piece. I tend to knit several things at a time. Its hard to just knit a seed stitch and cables for ever. So, I switch off with a stranded knitting project, or an easy knit I can do with my eyes closed, or a quick knit. That way I can always shift to a project depending on my mood. Gemini nature at work!
