Cable Sweater

I finished this last July after about 6 months of work. It was amazing fun to knit, since it's such a great pattern and I used beautiful Italian cotton yarn.

Absolutely beautiful! Is it a burgundy colour? I really like how the ribbed sleeves go with the cabling; they compliment each other nicely. How did you like working with cotton? Those Italians know how to produce some very fine yarns!

I didn't take the photos with very good lighting -- it's actually more of a chocolate brown than anything. I really enjoyed working with the cotton, but I found it less forgiving than other yarns when I made mistakes, so I guess it's a mixed bag.

Fantastic work, though I don't think the photos do it justice.

This looks sooo great. And such a regular, even tension. Amazing work, Marc!

Don't worry, I'll be able to remember that when I see the progress pic up ;-)

The sweater is gorgeous; colour, design, and workmanship! What size needles were used to knit it?

Thanks :)

The ribbing was on 3mm needles and the main body of it was on 3.75mm.
