new sweater: short sleeves and cables

Again, I really love the diamond cable detail on the back:

This is one of those sweaters that really benefited from blocking. The buttonholes miraculously went from very weird and lumpy to pretty darned normal. I almost wish I had taken a before picture to demonstrate, but I’d be kind of embarrassed to admit I produced anything that ugly, even if the ugliness was later fixed. Trust me, it was a mess. But now it’s not! Score one for blocking.
