Casting on a little cardie

I wanted to make a little cardigan with cabling on it for my little godson.  After making the Cycling Aran for my significant other, I sort of got a cable bug, and am dreaming of making a St Brigid sweater out of Alice Starmore's Aran Knitting. But But I am holding that off for a bit, it would be a major undertaking.  Better to do something small. :)  After browsing through Ravelry patterns for ages I ended up with a pattern from Drops/Garnstudio.  I choose Karisma for yarn as I like the wooliness better in this than in the suggested Merino extra fine, and also I prefer this color. Little Winston's mother (Einar is his real name but sometimes I call him Winston, its his second name) likes to dress him in green. 

I am going to make a few modificatons to the pattern, reverse a couple of the cables for better symmetry, and also let the cables on the front edges continue up over the hood, like some other ravellers have done. I am not sure how much moss knitting I will be doing, it'äs not a favourite of mine, but some may stay.

I'll try to make notes, here, and/or in my ravelry project page.

Here we go!
