Tangled in Cables

Knit Picks Fall 2008 catalog is out so I'm in the clear to blog about my first official sample knit for them. It was both a fun and challenging piece. At one point I was working from 4 cable charts while simultaneously decreasing the raglan shoulders. The photo's show the process from week to week.
I must have caught the 'cabling' bug, because all my projects after this had some sort of cable work.

Before buttons and blocking.
