Are you ready for a new sweater? How about some cables? You’re in luck! Today is the preview episode for Season Three of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames. We will be knitting Basic Cable over the course of 12 weeks. Well, you’ll be knitting Basic Cable, and I will be working on a new design, Premium Cable, which has some of the same elements (so I can show you what we are talking about) but with an extra kick. I’m so excited and hope you are too! Visit the episode thread in the Kathleen Dames Design Ravelry group: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kathleen-dames-design/3512686/
