The (finally) completed back for my husband's Cabled Rib Cardigan from Tara Jon Manning's book "Men in Knits." This has been languishing on the needles for three years, so it's nice to finally see progress. Finally. The yarn is Blackwater Abbey's Bluestack, a lovely bluish-purple tweed with red and mustard-colored flecks.

As you can see, I've *finally* completed the first sleeve after quite a lag - I set myself a goal of finishing the sleeve by October 17, and I made it. Next up? Sleeve two.

Hard to see, but there is actually about an inch of sleeve coming off the body here. Now, about six inches. This is my husband's Cabled Rib Cardigan from Tara Jon Manning's book "Men in Knits".

I had no idea when I started this sweater in 2004 that it would become a multi-year project, but I'm hoping to finish the back as part of NaKniSweMo this month. I may not make it, but at least I'm almost up to the armhole shaping after two years (of intermittent work)!
