FO: Cabled, zipped jacket from Schoeller Stahl Winter 03/04
Hooray, it is finally done! This is my sister's Christmas present. It is the cabled, zipped jacket from Schoeller Stahl Winter 2003/2004 made with 11 balls of Schoeller Stahl Merino Stretch. It is too big on me, but I think it will fit her ok. I haven't put the zipper in yet, but I'm still calling it done! :D

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! :D Ingrid, I'm going to see if I can get my MIL to help me put the zipper in--I'll see her before I see my sister in Dec. Otherwise I'm sure I'd mess it up!
