Cobblestone: Fini!

Made with love for our fifteenth wedding anniversary.
Cobblestone is a great pattern. I love that there are only two underarm seams to stitch up.
The short rows are well thought out. However, I am not a short row fan. I don't know why, but they caused me hours of frustration, leading me to rip out the garter stitch yoke more than once. If you look closely (please don't) you will see where I just finally just let it go.
I love it and so does Andy.
Details:
M-03 Grey Heather
size six needles

Looks great! What a lucky husband. I have had some cascade 220 sitting around for a cobblestone for my husband and I'm so afraid to cast on...maybe next year I'll get to it :)

Oh it's gorgeous! And the less seaming the better :) If I cast on now, maybe I could have one done by our next wedding anniversary...

What a great gift - you're a good wife! It looks awesome. I saw a great tutorial on picking up short row wraps... I'm going to put on my thinking cap to remember where and let you know.

Oh! Speaking of letting you know... I finally made the pumpkin biscotti - RAVE reviews. Everyone loved them! Thanks!

It is gorgeous. Happy Anniversary.

Did you follow the pattern from the Interweave magazine? I did and had trouble with the short rows. I read on Ravelry that the PDF download has more information about how to handle them.

Happy Anniversary and it turned out great. I'm sure he will love it and wear it all the time! All of the Cobblestones I have seen look amazing on.

You're inspiring me to finish a similar sweater I've had on the needles for too long now!! Maybe in 2011!
