Still too new to post pics, so here's my own personal god in flickr form. Mr. Tim Gunn, folks.

I made the stencil with some old contact paper we had stashed in a drawer, my trusty Xacto, and fabric paint from Michaels. Whatdathink? Is he recognizable?

The red one is my own design, although when I finished I realized it looks a lot like Arwen from IK, and that if I had followed that pattern, it might've been a helluva lot easier.

Celtic Cable Cardigan Part Deux by Tucker104, on Flickr
I used Knitpicks Merino Style in Maple Leaf. I love this yarn; it was so fabulous to knit with and really makes the cabling pop.

The purple is a highly modified version of the placed cable aran from IK Fall 07. I worked it in the round from the bottom up, then worked the front and back cabling. I skipped the cowl type collar altogether, and instead of knitting flat and sewing the sleeves on, I just picked up stitches evenly around the sleeve openings and knit straight down with no decreases for a flare. I used Red Heart Soft Yarn, and this yarn is so surprisingly soft after you wash the sweater that I'll definitely use it again.

I'm so in love with that cardigan. I wanted to buy this pattern, but the lace and cable kimono cardi is a seriously confusing pattern, so I'm hesitant to buy this one. Now you've got me totally reconsidering. Excellent job!

Absolutely gorgeous! I've got to get my ass down to that Salvation Army and start rummaging. That was one killer storm we had this summer. I'm lovin' these cute little snow flurries this week though.

Those are badass! I especially love the shade of red on the tunic. Great job!
