Dewey Cable Pullover in Progress


I've been working on this baby sweater pattern from Vintage Baby Knits for a while now. The Dewey Cabled Pullover was adapted from a vintage 1941 pattern, with a boatneck, 3/4 sleeves, and classy cable detailing, I decided to make one for myself. Instead of knitting it in baby-scale, I decided to use larger needles and worsted weight yarn to make this sweater. I'm using KnitPicks' Shine Worsted in color Green Apple, one of my favorite colors. I'm about 3/4 done on the body, then I've got the sleeves to go. I think this will be a great top for Fall, and I can definitely wear it with jeans or work trousers. I can't wait to finish!

This will probably be the last knitting project I'm doing for myself this year - I have got to start knitting for the holidays!
