I knit it out of Clasic Elite 03 Tweed (2 and a half skeins) and US7 needles and did the second half without a cable needle (so much quicker). I hope that my father-in-law, the lucky giftee, will love it as much as I do. Here's a close-up shot.
I haven't blocked it yet and was wondering whether doing so it worthwhile? I kind of like how the cables look unblocked...though it is a little narrow. Any thoughts?
