This is the sweater that I'm knitting for Brad from Elsebeth Lavold's new pattern book; the pattern is called Ludo. It's an interesting, very easy pattern that gives the illusion of cables.
The pattern calls for Cable Cotton; and I'm using one of the new spring colors (#019 Blue). It's such a fabulous yarn to work with. I love the soft, springy fabric it creates.
I normally have several sweaters going for Brad, but right now I just have this one. I'm hoping to have it finished up for his birthday in July.
I appreciate having a husband who is so supportive of my love for knitting. He doesn't just tolerate wearing things I make for him; he actually enjoys receiving and wearing hand knit sweaters and such! I sometimes have students or customers that say that their spouse or partner would never wear anything they knit (for many different reasons); that makes me sad. But it gives me one more reason to believe that I made the right choice almost 23 years ago!
