thanks loraine!
it was a lot of work to knit something this heavily textured.

Oh, my! This is truly stunning. I've been thinking about McQueen's cables for a while now...

i've been loving mcqueen's cables since i first laid eyes on them!!!

and studied the cable sweater for a while before attempting it. deciphering the pattern for the not-so-cute version in vogue knitting inspired the creation of the copy of the original.

thank you for the compliment nora.
