One Down, Nine to Go!

Here's the first repeat of the waist band. I love knitting cables, but I do it so slowly it must be painful to watch. I figured out yesterday that I didn't have enough yarn in this color to knit the whole sweater so I had to order more. Knowing that the dye lot number will most likely be different I decided to do all three cabled bits first and then the rest of the sweater just in case there was a bit of difference in the intensity of the color. At least then it will look like a design element :-) If the color is too terribly different then it looks like I'll be knitting the cabled bits twice! Here's a picture of my progress (excuse the Cat in the Hat pajamas :-) ).
