Although it's a little bit late, I finished it before the weather gets warm. And I am proud of myself of knitting this sweater. I don't really like cabling, but after looking at the FO, all the cabling time is worth it.
Yarn: 6.5 skeins Misti International Pima Cotton/Silk in purple
The yarn is very soft, but it does have lots of lints even before I wash it. As for the pattern, I love the top down method since I don't like seaming. It only requires a little seaming underarm.
