Aidez KAL - Day 1

Today is the start of the Aidez cardigan KAL (knit-along) that Allyson from The Sweatshop of Love blog is hostessing.

This week's assignment is to knit 6 inches before next Monday.  That's 3 inches of ribbing and then 3 inches of pattern which includes cables (gulp).  The original pattern is knit in pieces, but we're knitting the two front pieces and the back all at one time.

Tonight I cast on and finished the ribbing portion.  Tomorrow I will attempt the pattern/cable portion.  I'm a little unclear about how to do the one cable, but I'm hoping to find a youtube video that will help me visual it.

The yarn is Cascade Yarns Eco Wool in the colorway Latte.
