The pattern I used was Cranberry Sauce, and it was incredibly easy and quick. I used Loops & Threads Charisma in the colorway Charcoal, and I think it used slightly less than one skein.
I think it was one of the first cable projects I did- but then, I haven't done many. Becca was very happy with it, and so was my other sister, Mary Margaret. I made her one for Christmas, but unfortunately have no photographic evidence to prove this.
On a more current note, I finally got to the lace section in my Holden Shawlette. I'm hoping to work on it a bit more tonight and tomorrow before I take pictures and blog about it for WIP Wednesday. So far the lace has been much more interesting than the stockinette, and I've already made one mistake! A record I'm sure. (Don't worry- I fixed it without too much trouble.)
