Yours looks great! 

I've wanted to knit that for awhile, but I'm curious as to difficulty, as I've only been knitting for about a year.

Would you say that a brave early-intermediate-ish knitter could pull this off?

Lovely!  It's rekindled my desire to make this pattern.  I like your mods, too.  Beautiful colour choice, and I like the photos!  Very dynamic Smiley

Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments! Craftsters always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside -- which is great, because it's freezing here!!  Grin

For this pattern, you need to be functionally capable with cables. The cable pattern is a bit tricky, because you cable on the front AND the back. If you haven't done them before, I'd suggest cutting your teeth on a smaller cabled project first. There is some short row shaping on the neck, which is the only place I got stuck. I found a video online that showed me how to do it, and then I breezed through. Overall, I'd say go for it! For a sweater, this is a pretty quick knit because it's on large-ish needles. And the result is so satisfying!  Cheesy

How many skeins of yarn did you use, if you don't mind my asking?  I've wanted to make this forever... I know I don't have the patience for a sweater, but I always kind of thought I could do this one, because it's chunkier and it has cables to keep it interesting.  I was a little apprehensive about making a chunky sweater because I was afraid it would make me look chubby, but you're about the same size as me and it looks fab!  So... you might have just inspired me to make my first sweater.  Grin
