Crossed in Translation...Again
Here is a photo of my progress on the beginning of the AmKamin sweater. I've done about 5 rows of the body pattern, and it gets pretty boring after the 3rd or 4th repetition! Well, maybe not boring, but I do get sick of doing it! This sweater may be a long time coming. I may have used up my excitement on all the swatches. Plus, the first week's excitement seems to have dissipated over at the Crossed in Translation blog, too. What are you all up to out there? Let me hear from you!

I don't know how to get the lighting quite right in these photos to really show the cables. If you all have any suggestions, I'd sure like to hear them!

Natural light is best for photos, no flash.

I tried to answer you earlier but I am still running into user problems working thru the blog system.

I would love to have your instructions. Usually I consider myself to be a pretty good knitter - then I find out how much I don't know!. Very humbling.

Thanks so much!

what yarn did you end up choosing? After looking into the project more, I decided against the Frangiapani, knowing that it would be gorgeous but too tight a gauge. I have a bunch of Dale Falk that I may use but it splits like heck. I swatch some coned tweedy wool (somhere between a sport and dk) that would look great and because it is still oiled it will be pretty easy to work with....

Your description of the stitch here is great. thanks again!
