My first cable sweater for my best guy!

Darling husband Daryl is shown wearing his new sweater begun in late December. This "Aran Pullover Sweater" pattern came from Lion Brand Yarn's site, and I used Wool-ease worsted weight yarn called "Fisherman". I cast on the sweater in late December, 2005, took it off the needles on February 17th. It took a couple of evenings to carefully join the parts and then it was blocked on February 23rd. Yippee!! I'm very pleased with its overall appearance although I think the sleeves should have been shorter (and I measured twice!) and the neck band higher/tighter.
I enjoyed working with cables and so today I'll begin my next project, an Aran Poncho, designed by "Patons Design Studio".
