Cable Guy Done!!

I'm pretty happy with it....

Details at:

I'd change the neck if I did it again (I don't like the double-chin look) and make the arms a bit shorter (I lengthened them and the body from the original pattern). But I can wear it and am happy. It's only the second adult sweater I've successfully completed (I've completed three... one was decidedly not successful!)

If you're interested in making the pattern, I put a few notes on the bottom of the post regarding the sizing/neck hole/etc.

Grace and Peace,

It looks AWESOME Tim. I like the yarn choice and the color suits you well. Sorry I couldn't help with the pattern issues! I've put mine on hiatus and I'm just at the point at joining the sleeves to the body. I'll be hitting you up for advice when I get back to it.

nice job. re necks, i almost always find a way to leave it on needle for picking up neckband instead of casting off and then picking up
