Cables & Garter

 I am so so close to finishing my sweater in Stonehedge Shepard's Wool...just another couple inches on the sleeve until I am done!


I won't make it with this ball of yarn though- I will have to wind another just for a few yards.  The skeins are 250 yards, and I got enough to make a sweater plus hat and scarf or mittens if I wanted, so I am thinking I might need a hat in the cable pattern as well.



There are a LOT of button holes. Spaced about an inch and a half apart, since I hate it when the front gaps when there is zero or negative ease. I ordered shell buttons in a variety of shapes, 20 (or more) of each to try them out.
The sleeves are straight and untapered since they are 3/4 sleeves that are fairly fitted.
