at last! the cabled hoodie

Done at last!

pattern: Cabled hooded pullover from VK Fall 2008
yarn: Eskimo 50g/50m 100% wool (Garnstudio/DROPS) in 34m - rust/blue mix (20 balls!!!)
needles: 6mm
mods: had to tweak the numbers a little, because the gauge was slightly off; otherwise i just followed the pattern (wow, THIS does not happen often)

i like the sweater very much! it was intended for winter (it can get rather cold here in Stockholm), it's ready for spring... it'll get some wear, i'm sure of that - spring can be capricious, too. it's a rather heavy sweater, 1 kg! i don't think i'll be knitting anything this bulky and heavy anytime soon... the winter is over ;-).
