Supplemental follow-up photographic post

As referenced in my last post, here is the yarn I have chosen for Rogue:
Cascade 220 - Light Green Heather

Here is one hank that I turned into a center-pull ball (picture included because I just love hand-wound center-pull yarn-balls):
Hand-wound
It looks like a nice, squaredy-shaped apple! Or ball of yarn!

I started Rogue in that exact same yarn, but wasn't satisfied with it. I think it needs to be knit rather tightly in order for the cables to really pop. I suggest knitting at a tighter gauge and making a larger size. I ended up getting different yarn and starting over (though it's still not finished!).

Thanks for the tip, Tipper! ;)

I really liked the look of my swatch knit up on 8s better from the start. I think my best course of action now would be to knit a couple swatches with cables and then block them to see how they turn out. I've seen a few Rogue sweaters done in Cascade, so I know it's possible... It's just going to be a matter of hitting an acceptable gauge!

Time for some good old-fashioned trial-and-error!

I have yarn for this pattern as well, but somehow I have not felt "up" to casting it on. I love the color and the yarn you chose.
