Shetland Triangle: Almost There!

I am so close to finishing the Shetland Triangle. I bound off early this week, but I need to block it. I think I'm going to wait until I visit my parents next week to do that, because they have more floorspace. This picture is just a preview; I experimented with pinning the shawl on my ironing board to get a feel for what the final product will look like.

I have also started swatching for a sweater--another go at the Cable/Rib Cardigan from Vogue Knitting a couple years back. I have already knit this pattern once before, but the yarn I used (Debbie Bliss Cashmerino) is starting to look pretty ratty. So I pulled out some Classic Elite Patina I had in the stash and started swatching. I still need to wash the swatch, but I think I've found a gauge I like.

Hooray for being done! 'Can't wait what your blocked Shetland Triangle will look like.
Are you using a similar color for your new Rib/Cable cardigan?
