So this is my first sweater ever completed!  I've done a ton of hats/scarfs, and started quite a few sweaters, cardigans, etc., but I have a nasty habit of never finishing them.  I guess the rather large gauge on this one helped a lot! 

Here she be, ladies and gents. 



It is the originally named:  Sweater with Cable Patterns, from Rebecca 28.  Sadly, this is the only picture I have of this sweater as I left it at home, and I am now miles away at college.   Cry

It looks awesome!  But if I were you I'd call home all the time to make sure no one else is claiming that sweater since your not around, b/c if my sister had made something that cute I would definitely be wearing it everywhere.  But maybe that's just sister paranoia......

You did an awesome job with it!  Shocked  It's a gorgeous looking sweater--not a stitch out of place and the color shows off the cables so well.  I've yet to knit a sweater so you're my hero!
