Wildflower Sweater....update

I've been knitting every spare minute I get and just got finished the back of the wildflower sweater. I chose not to knit the flower pattern on the back otherwise I'd be on forever trying to get this done. If I spend too long on a project more than likely I will get bored with it and it will turn in to a UFO! I don't want that to happen with this one, so I've kept the back plain but did add the cable detail as it calls for. Here's the finished back.....

And a close up of the cable detail.... (you should be able to click the picture to enlarge).

I haven't gotten very far with the front cos that takes a bit more concentration with the flower pattern and I need to do it when all is quiet. I'll keep doing a little at a time and in the meantime will cast on for the sleeve also.

More updates soon....

You are doing a great job! It is just beautiful! That book is something that I aspire to. I made the hat that goes with the sweater, it came out great but was hard. How long have you been kintting and how much time do you spend daily knitting? I always wonder when I read blogs. Everyone seems to have young families. My children are grown and I still don't seem to have enough time to knit as much as I want!

This sweater is going to be so pretty!

I love the little cable in the back and it should make a nice, comfortable fit.

There is no way this can become a UFO! It's just too cute!
