Rogue is FINISHED!

And I went crazy with the FO pics! Warning, picture heavy post!

I finished sewing the sleeves, just today. All in all, it took me about 2 months to knit this sweater. I'm hoping the next will take a shorter amount of time.

I knit this using a yarn I found in Las Vegas. It's Cestari 2-ply wool. I ended up emailing them to order more skeins, since the Las Vegas store only had 5.

I loved knitting the cables on the hood. Following the chart, and keeping track made it super easy. I honestly was expecting it to be a lot harder. If you're intimidated by Rogue, don't be! A highlighter will be your best friend!

I think I did an decent job grafting the hood. The puckering on the underside in this picture is the only thing I don't like about Rogue.

Overall, I'm very happy!
The sleeve cables were fun too!

I ended up finishing it on a great day to wear it! It was cool and rainy in Seattle today!

Now for some cable pr0n. :)

It's a winner!
