I've finished the lower back and am about to start with the upper section. Kind of giddy.
This yarn is so lovely to knit with. It's half alpaca half peruvian wool. It feels fantastic in the hand. I was using the cable needle-free version of cabling from Wendy Knits' website (http://wendyknits.net/knit/cablelesson.htm). But the yarn just couldn't handle it easily. So I've ordered a cable needle set from Knit Picks and until then am using a dpn. I forgot to bring it on a car trip yesterday and ended up using a pencil. Worked just fine. But definitely look forward to the shorter cable needle when it arrives!
I've decided to make the XL.
Loving all your pictures. Happy knitting!
