FO - Interlocking Balloons

Finished on 11/11, blocked and ready to wear. And just in time for the cold weather this week!

Here it is:

Done in Gems Merino (sportweight). I did the exact number of repeats from the pattern (9 full and then one without the 2 cables at the end). Used 2+ skeins of the yarn, which is a lot more yardage but since it was a different yarn, and I am guessing thinner, then that makes sense. It blocked out 9" wide and ? long. I do know that it is longer than the finished dimensions in the book.

It was a fun knit. I was thinking about making another in grey for my dad, but then decided I wanted to do something similar but different. Not from the book, but nice:
Steam Scarf

I ordered some yarn from to make myself a cranberry colored Backyard leaves. So I will be starting that, after doing the one for my dad.
