What a gorgeous design! I didn't sleep well last night so I am lacking in any imagination whatsoever for thinking up names at present, but it certainly deserves a very special name and I am sure you will spot it just as soon as someone comes up with right one!

Wonderful design! Will enjoy watching it unfold. Thanks also for the link to Janine's site. It's a new one for me.

As to a lovely graceful name?
How about Sylvan? (a mythical deity or spirit of the woods.)



How about Sirlig Kabel? Means Graceful Cable in Swedish. Which I don't speak I just looked it up. Whatever name you choose, it's gorgeous! I love Silky Wool (and Silky Tweed too) - I've got quite the stash!


I'll try to think about names when I'm feeling a bit smarter. I hope your back starts feeling better soon. Even if it's letting you knit it would still be nice if you could do other stuff too.


Beautiful design Mia. I love how the cables curve or weave around the collar. How about
Panatis, she's a Greek goddess of weaving? Hope your back improves soon.


Wow! I think that's the largest swatch I've ever seen! And yes, I just got some addi lace needles and went back yesterday for a size 1 32" circ for socks, they are so awesome. The sweater looks princess-y to me. How about Princapessa?


What a wonderful design!! I wish I could be as creative as the other commenters but I would simply suggested "Cabled Treasures" as the cables weave in and out and around and really do surround the sweater with treasures. Wow, hope you put this pattern up!! Thanks for the inspiration!


Wow, that is amazing. I love me some cables. I am in awe of your cleverness, and I have no idea what name to suggest as my creativity is low today (and most days, frankly).


Boy Maia, when you swatch you don't play, do you? It's gorgeous (and fluffy-ish - YAY!!) How about Odette? Swan-like and graceful but with character and strength? (and you can pronounce it, heh)


Feel better btw! Rest your back!

PS - You could always call it the "Debi" sweater just so you can have a set ;)


OK. Now, I'm on the right post so I'll comment again! Beautiful pattern -love the texture. I like Grace for the name. How about Cabled Gracefully or Full of Grace. Hope you feel better soon and you're right -- thank goodness you can knit! Take care!


What a beautiful design!



I'm so sorry to hear about your back.

I love this swatch! and your blog of course.
The name that came to me right away was 'Rapunzel" because the cables remind me of beautifully braided hair :)
