I started this, the Sake and Soba sweater from the book "Japanese Inspired Knits" almost a year ago. I didn't get very far, as you can see, because I couldn't make sense of the pattern. I contacted the publisher and it took quite a while to get a response and I moved on to other projects. It turned out there was an error in the charts.
Anyway - it's winter here now, and time to get on with it.
I'm trying to restrain myself from buying more wool for my next planned project until this is complete....or almost complete.Now that I've picked it up again, and worked out where I was up to, I am enjoying it - the cable and patterns have me keen to finish each row to see it develop.
