thanks everyone! It's amazing how something so little can make you so proud! :teehee:
Paul, It was actually very easy to do the cables. I was quite surprised. There's a bit of fiddling around but it gets easier as you go.
Slim, I love the Supermerino. It was my first time using it. I got in a swap here on KH. It is very soft and cushy. It's not malabrigo, but still. And the colors are so vibrant.
Now I'm trying to find the perfect bootie pattern for the leftover yarn.
