Yarn seeking project

I have finished 375 grams out of 1 kg of this moorit Shetland wool – wonderfully prepared and reasonably priced top from Jamieson & Smith, by the way – and my mind is turning to the ideal pattern for my first large handspun project. I want to knit a cabled cardigan that buttons all the way down. My WPI varies a little, unfortunately, but comes in at an average of 12. A super quick swatch suggests a gauge of 19 on 4 mm needles, but I’ll have to swatch more from several skeins, I think. The Central Park Hoodie has crossed my mind – it would certainly fit in with my pattern of shameless bandwagon jumping – but I’m still looking.
