William's cabled sweater

Yesterday evening I finished sewing up William's sweater, so I was able to take some photos today.

I made it using Sirdar Snuggly DK in a twisted blue shade, which unfortunately made the yarn a bit splitty, but gave it a nice look. It's in a size 6-12 mths but fits Leah, well apart from being a little short in the body. i think that's because it's for a chest size 51cm and Leah is approx 52 cm, so of course it fits!

I really enjoyed doing the cables and the collar looks really good too. This has really boosted my confidence with cables, so I may take on a larger project involving them.
