I went into my stash yesterday morning and found this:
Lots of loose ends of tapestry yarn, acquired from estate sales, grab bags, donations from people who know I knit. I had a thought. Looked at the Aran sweater I used for the Aran pillow collection. Traveling Cables is the pattern I want to play with.
Kaffe Fassett showed a sweater with multi-colored cables in one of his books but his cables didn't themselves travel; they simply traded colors on every FC. Found my Barbara Walker Cable book and the pattern I wanted.
Pulled one hank out of the bags in a color with plenty of yardage, although it didn't really matter, and cast on 88 stitches. Knit a few rows in seed stitch so the swatch won't curl.
Went into K4, P4 for one row, to set the markers. Added color.
