Hello Lamppost

I was a bit timid about knitting a sweater from this yarn (Woolen Rabbit Mara in the Feelin' Groovy color way). It was a bit too busy for my tastes, and there were noticeable differences between skeins. I chose Hannah Fettig's Rocky Coast Cardigan from Coastal Knits because I thought the cabling would through the yarn around a bit, and I alternated skeins.  Overall, I am happy with the way it turned out, although it would have been better to alternate skeins all the way down the arms.

Also, the arms are  tight. I was warned that the sleeves were narrow, so I added extra stitches and switched to larger needles. It was not, however, enough.
