Cable Sweater

I finished this last July after about 6 months of work. It was amazing fun to knit, since it's such a great pattern and I used beautiful Italian cotton yarn.

Fantastic work, though I don't think the photos do it justice.

Absolutely beautiful! Is it

Absolutely beautiful! Is it a burgundy colour? I really like how the ribbed sleeves go with the cabling; they compliment each other nicely. How did you like working with cotton? Those Italians know how to produce some very fine yarns!

I didn't take the photos

I didn't take the photos with very good lighting -- it's actually more of a chocolate brown than anything. I really enjoyed working with the cotton, but I found it less forgiving than other yarns when I made mistakes, so I guess it's a mixed bag.
