Birthday cables

It's finished at last! Making his blog debut, here is my husband Nick, modelling his birthday sweater in the snow.
To re-cap:
Pattern: based on
Skye Tweed Unisex Cable Rib Pullover by Kristen TenDyke Yarn: Diamond Galway Heather (100% wool, handwash)
Needles: 4.5 mm for the body, 4 mm for the cuffs and neckband

Modifications: many. Re-wrote the pattern for different gauge, added cuffs, changed the collar to a single K1 P1 rib.

I'm so happy to have this done, and he's really happy with it too. And only a month and a half late! I was starting to feel a little guilty - my birthday is tomorrow. At least there's a little bit of winter left to enjoy a warm wooly sweater.

Oh Kelly! That is one gorgeous sweater and it looks like it fits him perfectly! and he's all happy! What an exceptional project and done so beautifully.
Just in case you don't post tomorrow...A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! A Spring/Vernal Equinox baby. I have a niece who's birthday is tomorrow and she'll be 35, she was actually born on the equinox day back then, her name? Spring Grace.

Hope your day is filled with all kinds of goodness!
