Sample knitting—Rowe

If you love cables as much as I do, you'll fall head over heels in love with this gorgeous sweater. When Brooklyn Tweed contacted me about knitting the sample for this design, I knew it was going to be special. A long coat dripping in warm grey cables designed by Michele Wang? Sign me up!

It's an epic knitting project for sure, but oh so worth it!

A stunningly beautiful design, for sure, but I am in awe of your skill as a knitter, and not for the first time, mind you! I also admire the commitment needed to take on such a big project, all the while knowing that you will have to relinquish it when done!

I fell in love with this cardigan after seeing it on the BT website and haven't been able to get it off my mind. The problem is that I've always shied away from big garments, preferring accessories, but a wonderful friend knowing how much I love the cardigan sent me enough BT (faded quilt colour way)to encourage me to take the plunge so I am planning to cast on at the weekend :) Your lovely blog post has made me want to knit it even more.

I, too, saw this on the BT website and marveled at the beauty of this sweater. You are truly a master knitter, Nicole.

Claire In Stitches, how great a friend you have to send you such a generous gift!
