This really is a different photo than the ones that look very similar to it back here, (Braid Cable Pullover)
but the reference to Herman & The Hermits songline in the title of this post is apropos - as in the front is exactly like the back (grin)
I am about 3/4 of the way finished with the front, and in about another 40 rows, I will decrease for the neckline. hurrah. I'm coming down the home stretch. (The design calls for a picot edge trim around the entire bottom and the cuffs on the sleeves, but I have not yet committed to this concept fully). All the other pieces of this sweater are completed. The cables on this sweater take a bit of concentration, and thus it hasn't been a very portable project; yet I am enjoying every single stitch.
This little number, on the other hand, was completely portable, & traveled well in my knit bag, and was simple to pick up for a few rows between client sessions AND is now complete!

The shoulders are knit together with a three needle bind-off, and then the sleeves are knit down from the top of the shoulder.
I had fully intended on posting some in-progress shots, but my days were full of work at both jobs, and I have not made time to read my bloglines (there is something rather daunting about 352 blog posts that everyone has made during this week that makes me leery of even peeking...yes - and that was when I checked this morning before work.....yikes... ) I hope to catch up tomorrow, it all depends on if the sun is shining (hah!) The store is actually closed this sunday for Easter, and thus I get my first day off in three weeks. (yippee) There will be lounging in comfy clothes, sipping a great cuppa coffee, and maybe even a bit of weeding in my garden if the sunshine holds.
