The original plan for this yarn was a plain vest with one cable. When I stumbled upon Debbie Bliss' Book Seven --- I couldn't wait to knit this pattern, Lisa.
I have to say, working cables wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought they would be. It was fun to work something a little more challenging. I don't think I'll be going back to stockinette stich for a while.
Rumor has it that knitting cables are going to be THE thing to knit this fall...I can't wait for the weather to get a little cooler so I can show this off!
