Burda WOF August 2008 Cabled Sweater

This may end up in the dustbin.The front and back are done, yoke almost finished.But where is the rest of the yarn to finish the sleeves?
Yarn is now discontinued and unable to locate online. YIKES !!!!!

More like a disaster in the making than WIP.Oh well at least I get practice on a new to me version of cabling without a cable needle

I did find an amazing tutorial for cabling sans cable needle.

If you have a rack sized DD to K cup , then you will know who or what Bravissimo is.

Just got the latest catalogue and they have extended their clothing range to include suits and coats.
They are probably one of the very few companies that offer knit tops , dresses , jackets and coats for full busted women( and not necessarily bigger or plus sized ones)

Even if one wasnt able to buy the garments, they showcase styles that look great for us needing to do VVFBA to get clothes to fit .

Me I am going back home in a few weeks time so will be able to visit the Ealing and Covent Garden shops in person.
