Finally done and ready to wear to the playground today. It's 50 degrees!

It fits really well and has a nice heavy drape to it, so it feels nice and cozy.
I'm still bitter about the yarn, but I do like the sweater. The pattern was fun and I love the cable - maybe I'll use it in a scarf or hat someday?

here's my worst mistake at the hood seam.
I think I didn't end on the right row.. oops.

Arwen looks fabulous!

And the mistake on the hood isn't you, it's the pattern. Someone on the knitty board pointed out that you have to end a row earlier on the second side to make it work, which I didn't know when doing mine either. No matter what, it looks great.

Sorry you're disappointed about the yarn but the cardi is gorgeous.

I would never have noticed the hood mistake in a million years.

It's awesome looking! I so jealous of your finished project. I am using very similar colored yarn, and love the color. I am having problem after problem. I am going to my LYS to once again rip back due to lack of reading the directions PROPERLY! Bad me. I LOVE it!
