As promised, here's how my Mr. Greenjeans cardigan is coming along. I started it last spring (I think - hey, it's been a long time), but like my other knitting projects, only gets worked on when traveling, or when I can't work on my other projects. Instead of long sleeves, it has 3/4 sleeves, which should help me get it finished a bit sooner.
Once this sleeve is finished, I'll knit the second, and then it will be finished by adding a band all around the front and neck opening. In case you're wondering about the white, dotted line on the sleeve I'm knitting, it is my holding thread, like the one holding the left sleeve stitches. I've temporarily left it in so that I can take measurements from there when following the sleeve instructions.
Even though it won't be blocked until it is finished, I hope you can see the alternate cable and plain column ribbing.
