I must spend too much time on You Tube

As usual, there are apologies going out .....this time to The Ramones.

Well the yarn was wound to cakes and ready to go It was ready to knit now! She got her pattern It’s from the net ,she was going to knit another cabled Durrow But she just couldn't stay, from the pattern she had to stray

A top down raglan really has is all oh yeah, oh yeah

Durrow is a Top Down Raglan And she turned it into a Cardigan

Durrow is a Top Down Raglan now

Ok, enough fooling around!

Loosely based on Durrow, at least the cable is mostly accurate!
Worked from the top down, with pockets on both fronts we have my Dad's Christmas Cardigan!
Wanna see the cables?
Not really that much difference worked bottom up or top down. :)
Yarn was from a company that appears to have long since gone out of business...Colorado Yarns, Durango in what I am calling Dryer Lint black. Whoever came up with the idea of just laying slubs of lint next to the yarn in the winding process to create tweed was out of their mind and I have a little pile of bits that I picked out as I was knitting. But, complaints aside it is a pretty soft wool and will keep the cold man warm.

Just to keep this a really picture heavy post, another finished object to show!
Herringbone Mittens (ravelry link)
size Large, needles 5's and 7's (US)
Lion Brand Lion Cashmere Blend in the palest of pinks and black.

If I wasn't scared of jinxing myself I would say that I am making some headway on the holiday knitting....

You must be making headway because you are churning them out at a rate of knots. Great cables and the mitts look fantastic.

I love that cardigan you made for your dad and the mittens look very complicated to knit.
