FO: Blackberry Cabled Cardigan
This was a fun knit, except the miles and miles of ribbing bands! (knit in the round and round, about 600 stitches around! ack!)
I started it in May, and finally finished it up tonight! It is done, however, after I took the photos, I piled soppy wet terry cloths on top of the ribbing bands to permanently "set" the curves around the bottom fronts. Otherwise, the curves can't fan out well, and then the sweater becomes distorted.

Pattern: Blackberry Cabled Cardigan
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool (dk)
Modifications: no buttonholes; no shawl collar; no trinity stitch (dbl moss instead)
My Ravelry notes, if you care to read them

Beautiful. You are truly amazing. I suggest wearing this with black slacks and a white turtleneck.
