Cabled Ribs?

Not real ribs, but the ribbing on a jumper!  Variegated yarn makes a plain pattern very interesting and then, when used in a cable pattern, the intrigue for how it was knitted increases.  This jumper has been knitted from Creative Fibres pure wool (colour Spring) which was overdyed to give the glorious colour.  So soft to knit with using Patons Classics Pattern baby/toddler book.  Size 2 child.

When I was knitting the bands for this jumper, I kept on thinking of fariy floss on a sunny summer day with butterflies flitting to and fro - hopefully the little girl that this has been gifted to will be a fairy in her imaginary play.  :)
