Here's what I have done so far:
left side:


I'm using wool of the andes in Winter Sky (I think).  It's soft and nice.

Thanks for the tip lawral! Hopefully that won't be a problem since I tend to knit large.

PixieJRose- I forgot to tell you how amazing yours looks. Plus the buttons are so awesome!

BeeSting- I love the color! I've got to get some yarn in that shade of blue... there might actually be a gap in my stash. *gasp*

Thanks for all your comments  Smiley BTW, blocking made it look so much nicer- straightened out the cables and gave it a better fit. It just finished drying just in time for the cool weekend coming up!

BeeSting- I LOVE that blue. It's so pretty. I can't wait to see it finished!

Aunt Carrot- don't know if you figured it out or not, but on the first front piece, you cast off on the rs, but on the other, you do it opposite- so cast off on the ws. (I always have to hold mine up to me to see what edge is the neck edge lol) Hope that helps!

 Can someone tell me the sizes, and yardage for this? I can't find my copy anywhere. I've torn up the whole house looking for it?! I'll go buy another copy, but I want to see if I have enough yarn in the stash first.

I haven't started this yet (my yarn hasn't arrived and I have tons of WIP's to finish), but I wanted to share my yarn choice, because I think it's an economical solution to the Donegal Tweed.  I chose Elann's Peruvian Sierra Aran in the Lichen shade.  It just went on sale last week and is $2.98 a ball and comes in lots of great shades.  I am not sure if it will work out, since I have not seen the yarn in person, but the gauge seems right and the yarn looks like it would be nice.  If you are looking for something to sub, you might want to check it out.

See where I screwed up? That's what you get for knitting during Grey's Anatomy. Damn the towel!

I'm not fixing it, though. It's my scarlet letter.

No worries Aunt Carrot, it'll be our little secret.

I have noticed some 'mis-directed' cable son my Rogue hoodie but nobody else has...

Please visit my blog. Comments make us all happy:

I love the green, and the misdirected cable gives it character  Wink

I thought I was finished with this pattern, but it turns out I now have 2 more to make. My hubby loved mine so much he wants me to make one for his mom for xmas

Then, I wore it to my LYS, and she loved it so much she is commissioning me to make one for the shop!

The one for my mother-in-law is in berrocco ultra alpaca in a pretty blue and the one for the shop is of course in the reccomended yarn, but in a very pretty pink
By the time I am finished with this pattern, I may need to burn it!  Shocked

i am not creative

Aunt Carrot, I did the same thing in probably the same place on my sweater!

Ah, I was going to post photos of my progress, but apparently I do not have a high enough post count to do so. Oh well, hopefully I will by the time I'm done.
