Rogue: Page 5, Step 4

Recently, nona's world has revolved around spiral madness, finger fever, and baby bobbles.  This evening -- with the work week behind me and take out food on the table -- the "back to basics" knitting Siren softly cooed, "sweater, wool, cables."  Thinking it prudent, I listened to the imaginary voice and succumbed to the pleasures of knitting Rogue.  For my fellow Rogue knitters, I'm one page 5, step 4, chart A, row 61 -- need I say more?

I rarely follow a pattern as written, always adding this and changing that.  Not so for Rogue.  I'm minding my Ps and Qs, following the pattern step by step, and enjoying the ingenious details along the way.  Case in point, as the side cable twists and turns, in and out, it quietly doubles as the sweater's waist shaping.  In nona's book, the girl from auntie is one clever girl and I'm going to listen and learn!

You are so right. It is a fabulous pattern, I too had that light bulb moment when I realised that the cable doubled as the waist shaping. It is a stroke of genius. I'm loving the complex cables too. Rogue is on the back burner at the moment ( reluctantly) but DH needs a pair of Fingerless gloves / mittens for rigging up windsurfers. Chilly fingers come first :-)

I love your Rogue so far, but you still haven't told us what yarn you are using!

(or did I miss it that?)

Hey Nona, you've just started Rogue too?:-)) You're using a very similar color to mine as well, great! From what I can tell, your cables look a lot chunkier with that yarn you're using...I'm a little worried about mine coming out too loosely. I hope they're going to get better when I wash the sweater...

Oh, this is a wonderful pattern. I also knit it in a shade of green, but darker. What yarn are you using?

I just found your fabulous blog with the spiral pattern. Please help, I can't figure out row 18.

Thank you!
