"Heirloom" by Lisa Lloyd, from IK Spring 2004. I am using Rowan Wool Cotton (US 1 needles) from my stash, supplemented by an angel who sent me a ball when I said I was nervous about being short. All this beautiful cabling is achieved with variations of the simple "Cable 4 Front (C4F) or Cable 4 Back (C4B)". It seems fitting that the first cable that we all learn is used in various ways to make a baby sweater. Plus, the X/O pattern is so sweet, wrapping the baby in hugs and kisses.
Knitting friends are the most generous people. The stitch markers were handcrafted by Lynette, sent to me on the first round of Secret Pals. I really don't need them at this point in the process, but my daughter told me to leave them on because they look so pretty.
Thank you all for your wonderful ideas for the Water Mark. My mind has been expanded - I'm thinking some sort of scarf. For now, "Heirloom" is keeping me happily knitting away while I decide.
