That is so cute.  I wish I had taken to knitting better than I did!  You really can't find things like that for crochet.

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

I'm still too chicken to attempt a big cabled cardi though.

You know, this one was really quite straightforward, especially since there's a bonus cable "how-to" section in the mag. You're only crossing cables every 10 rows, and the rest is just knit and purl. I should also add that I didn't have any problems with errata or wonky instructions; everything was pretty much straightforward and it worked out. (Although I did change the way I did the hood, the pattern instructions work, it was just personal preference.)  So if you ever do want to try a cabled cardi, this might be a good pattern to start with.

What did you do differently for the hood?

What did you do differently for the hood?

The instructions said to bind off all the stitches at the top of the hood, then pick up the stitches for the ribbed band for each half of the sweater separately (so you do the lert side up to the top of the hood, then the right side), and then seam the top of the hood and the band shut. I decided to do a three-needle bind-off on the hood, and then pick up stitches for the entire band at once (I had to join together multiple cords from my Denise set...). 

I find I get a smaller ridge on the wrong side with the three-needle bind off rather than a true seam, which is why I did it that way. Looks the same from the outside though.

I thought about making mine in avocado but thought it probably wouldnt go too well with the rest of my clothes. I tend to wear a lot of earthy tones, so I went with Asparagus instead, and I love it. It basically looks just like yours, only a darker green. The color of yours looks great on you though.
