This is what I worked on while on my trip. Stockinette pieces with a cable yolk. Just enough simplicity with a little detail to keep it interesting. Not too bulky, great for traveling. If you haven't attempted cables in a sweater before, this may be the project for you. Just a small section, perfect.
Yarn: Queensland Leche Shade #9 brown (but all I see is PLUM!)
Needles: 1 pair US6 and US8
Size: 32"-34" actual 36"
This pattern can be made for a little girl, too. You better believe Libby would have had one.
