If I ever finish this and it fits...I will love this sweater forever. The merino style from Knit Picks has been in my stash for several years now. I knew that I'd find the perfect project for it one day, and Ladies...the Gathered Pullover is it. Who would've thought the eternal highway of stockinette would bust ass so quickly? I feel like I'm coasting through the rows. My enjoyment was doubled when I got to the cable section. This is my very 1st time following a chart and I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised with how easy it is. I almost prefer it to written instructions. Maybe my brain enjoys the ease of processing shapes instead of words. I think we took some test in High School about that. I wonder if I did well on it?
