Once it's washed and blocked, it'll all appear smooth and lovely. He likes it, which is good, because 326 sts takes a bit of time to knit. I am enjoying it, so if he wants another one, I'm game.
The top pic is a close-up of my cute little cable, and is much lighter than it really is.The yarn is Palette by Knit Picks, and the color is Ash, which is a lovely charcoal gray. I like knitting with it very much. Soft, flows through my fingers, and is nice and woolly.
I'm also knitting a hat for charity and 2 pairs of socks, but this is the main knitting at the moment. Lovely, mindless, soothing stuff.
