  • Can’t wait to see this done. Also wanted to make sure you saw the bit on msnbc.com where Ryan Gosling says that his filled with knitting. Who knew!

  • I know the color is impossible to capture, but I really hope it is as vibrant as this picture (rather than as dark as yesterday’s picture). I completely agree with your decision to leave the random cable being extra random. Looking forward to seeing it sewn up!

  • long ago and far away, I made a sweater designed by Lucy Neatby called “Cables After Whiskey”. Same concept, sorta, and the same amount of fun. I was so much younger then, and so full of knitting energy. Now I’m lucky to finish a cowl or scarf; sweaters drain me! go you!

  • A photo of a knitted object with a circled area and a red arrow is never a good thing. I had a little cardiac episode but I’m o.k.
    I’m glad that you decided done was better than perfect.

  • Nashville weather must be radically different from these here northeastern parts. Around here, alpaca and wool positively BESPEAK spring. Love thpse cables and wish I were joining it at the “spa”.

  • LOVE this sweater. And truly appreciate the runaway cable. How awesome is that?

  • Ah, yes. . .Soul Asylum’s song “Runaway Train”. . .the Julia Roberts film “Runaway Bride”. . .and now the Mason-Dixon Knitter’s “Runaway Cable.”
    Too bad I can’t find some mojo and get some “Runaway Knitting” done!

  • My son and I loved a book called Runaway Pumpkin! Beautiful sweaters and a nostalgic memory. Thank you Ann.

  • Oh, and I was feeling sorry for myself over the cables in Stephanie White’s Iceland. Putting on my big-girl panties now…

  • Beautiful color! That sweater has been on my to-do list for quite awhile (since that mag came out). It DOES look easy in the photo. Thanks for the heads up! Looks totally worth it, however.

  • Yes, the Runaway Whatever has endless possibilities. I like to use The Berenstain Bears and Whatever myself. When we were in the process of moving from one house to another, my favorite made-up title was: The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Crap.

  • What I want to know is this:
    if I run away, will someone send ME to a spa?
    Because I could leave tonight. It takes no time at all to pack a bandana on a stick.

  • Looked at that Rowan pattern, and the cables just made me dizzy. Kudos to you for attempting it. I don’t have nearly enough attention span for cables that go all katty wompus.
    The color looks like it must be truly fabulous in person.

  • I think the runaway cable gives it charm ๐Ÿ™‚

  • the sweater is lovely, “run aways” and all! i’m fascinated, too, by the changing properties of the color. i wonder, what color will it be when you wear it?
    speaking of sweaters, a4A just announced a new sweater campaign. i would like to make one this time. any thoughts out thrre for a simply knit (but stunning, of course) sweater pattern?
    knit on!
    lovediane

  • I highly recommend Allan Ahlberg’s Runaway Dinner. It doesn’t get much better than that!
