Allegheny Progress

I've also been working a little on my Allegheny Dress - honestly, not that much, but it goes so quickly that it looks like I've been working on it a lot!  Here's how it looked as of Sunday morning:


I just love that cable pattern.  Sleeve stitches have been removed, and it's at the point of starting the waist ribbing.  This is a great almost-mindless knitting project, but being 100% wool, it does get a little hot working on it!

  2. The cable is such a nice touch and brings the pattern something extra. I'll bet it is very warm to work on though. But at least you get to look at that pretty purple color while you work!

  3. Oh, I'm such a huge fan of turtlenecks and I just love how your dress is coming along. I've been resisting but I think I have to cast this on next!
