I joined the KAL awhile back, but didn't cast on until this month. I'm making the Cable & Rib Jacket from Wish You Were Here. I'm really enjoying this pattern so far. The twisted stitches mixed in with the rib pattern keep the knitting interesting. I love the texture of the pattern and the stitch definition of the yarn. I'm using Debbie Bliss Wool/Cotton (the pattern calls for DB Cotton Cashmere). I've had this yarn in my stash for two years and have been waiting to find the right pattern for it. I finally found one I'm excited about. The yarn is nice and soft. It's a little splitty though. Only a problem with the twisted stitches and if I drop a stitch. I can deal with it. I'm looking forward to finishing the back and getting to the front panels which involves cables.
I'm a little over halfway done with the back. This project involves a zipper which I've never attempted before. So anyone with experience and tips, your suggestions are welcome. For now I'll enjoy the knitting.
