Good for you! Yay! Looks great!
FYI: since you're one of our newbie knitters, I like to pass along something that took me forever to learn about yarn choice and pattern choice:
Cables show themselves off to their very best with a solid color yarn. And lighter solid colors are better than black and dark purples when working cables. Variegated yarns are great for plain knitting, such as stocking stitch, garter stitch, seed stitch, etc.
So when I want to knit a design that features cables, I look for solid color yarns, maybe tweedy at the most. But definitely not Noro self-striping yarns and the like.
And when I want to use a real complex variegated yarn, I look for a design that is worked with shaping as it's dominant quality...and a design that uses st st, rev st st, garter stitch, or seed stitch as the main pattern stitch.
We're very proud of you for working on your skill set!
Hope you don't mind a little advice from an experienced knitter!
I've been where you're at...and wish I'd had Knitting Help back then!
