An 80 degree day...

...and I'm wearing a wool sweater!

Yes, I'm nuts, but I just had to take a picture of my FIRST cabled sweater today and get it posted! I finished it this weekend while camping and I've been dying to show it off. It is the Cables in Chamonix sweater from the Yarn Girls Guide to Beyond the Basics on size 10.5 needles. I made it a crew neck instead of a turtle neck. It is knitted with two hanks of yummy Sonoma (I alternated from one hank to the other, every two rows).

Thanks for letting me share. I LOVE cables!!!

The color spread is perfect and the knit is superb!! That a perfect fit! If you get time, can you give me feedback on the pattern? I have this book and would love to make something in there.
