Pictures as promised

Here are the photos of my completed cabled jacket. It has no buttons, nor has it been blocked, but the knitting is done! It was a fairly quick knit, I can't remember when I started it exactly, but about a month ago. The cable detail is very easy and fun.

It's very soft and it fits, (although I think I know now why I don't own anything with raglan sleeves, I don't really like how they feel when I'm wearing it) and I'm sure I'll wear it.

What I really love is the yarn, Jo Sharp aran tweed. I bought more:-) Two sweaters worth. I don't have patterns picked out yet, one might be a sweater for DH. The other might be for a Rogue for me...

Last night I picked up the Manos sweater I started while the cable jacket was blocking and worked on it for a while. I don't know if I can get it finished before the Knitting Olympics starts but I'm going to try. It'll be good training!

I found your site through the Oklahoma Knitters ring. I live in OKC and it's always nice to see blogs from fellow Okies!

Beautiful jacket. It looks so warm and comfortable!

And good luck on the knitting Olympics! I entered, too--but with a significantly less challenging project!

This looks awesome, nice work. Jo Sharp is such a great brand. We were just talking about that at my knit group.

btw - thanks for the reference to Library Thing. I'm in love with it. I spent a lot of time this weekend entering our library...and then their server crashed and I lost all my entries! My spirits are up though - I'll just have to start over again.
