Buonissima complete!

Bonnie mosaic
Hope you noticed the Catalogue Man pose in the middle of the mosaic? Very C....

And I'm thrilled! It fits Clare to a T, and is just her sort of thing - asymmetry, cables, blue.... A great pattern. I'm surprised more people haven't rushed to make it!

When I blocked each piece it was easy to match the schematics for the size (36" bust) I made.
 
I used Bendigo aran in dusty blue, and bought 4 of their humungous 200g balls (300m each). A good match! (I have very little yarn left, and that's fair enough - the quoted 16 balls of 78m each comes to 1248m, and I had only 1200m). 
This yarn was nice to use and I think it'll wear and wash well - this is to be an every-day kind of jumper, rather than a keep-for-special.

HA! Great photos, and I LOVE the Catalogue Man pose! (Rodd is partial to "The beach is THAT way!" and "What time is it?" poses, as seen here. I'll have to show him Clare's.)

And of course, it's an amazingly lovely jumper. Well done!

You're a regular speed demon. It's beautiful and really suits her. My favorite pose is the Gumby on the lower left. "I've got a particle of brain lodged in my head."

I just love cables until I have to knit a whole sweater with them. Lovely work.
