Yeah, size 8. And it's my first cabled project as well. *shrugs* I dunno. I mean, I did spend a few hours of it already. I'm at a foot now, but I need to get a move on it to get it done before xmas. Like 2 feet a day.
Gah. Must.... knit....
You can do it Holly! Do not fear the cables!
Also, I'm using this yarn I got in a bag from my local thrift store. It's really hard and tight and super nice to knit with. It's not soft really, but it makes knitting really easy.
(no idea what it is though)
