Hurricane Vest Finito

Here it is - all done:

The stats:
Pattern: Hurricane Vest from Rowan Plaid Collection
Yarn: 8 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky
What I learned: Finishing! Shoulder seams, picking up stitches & knitting for collar and armhole ribbing.
This yarn is super fast to knit with, super soft and super warm. I would definately use it again. The knot patrol was happy with this yarn too - only one knot was found.
I also continued with my plan of cabling sans cable needle. I wondered if it would be harder since this yarn is much softer than the Rowan Yorkshire Tweed - but I had really no trouble at all. :)
