Oh, the red Rogue tree

I'm done with the main body cables! Yay! i bound off on the few stitches under the underarm (is that how you say that?) last night. Yippee Skippee!

I was on the next-to-last row when I saw that I had crossed the cables at the top the wrong way. I had been reading a knitting book, that said you could just undo one of the strands of the cables, down to where they crossed, then use a crochet hook to work the stitches back up. Well, I didn't want to froggit all the way back (more than 5 rows! sure I could have, but I really didn't want to) so I tried it. It worked, but it certainly wasn't as easy as that writer made it sound.

So, all my cables are now crossing correctly, and I'm ready for the next stage of my sweater.
