The silver sweater is bombing.  I’ve knitted the back:

0021and every stitch of it has screamed to me that this isn’t working.  The fabric is crispy and the yarn sucks up the texture of the cable.  I’ve been fighting my instincts all the way, but finally have to admit that this one isn’t going to work.

So I’m going to frog it and use the grey yarn to make a different pattern.  The silver…..well, I haven’t a clue.  If it’s going to be a garment it’ll need to be lined.  Or perhaps I could make loofahs…….
