Gauge: 5 stitches x 6 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Hourglass Cable

Comments: I'm classifying this next series of swatches as 'cheater swatches' because even though I took the yarn, needles, and patterns with me when I went to my friend's wedding, I didn't actually do any knitting while I was there.  Nevertheless, 7 swatches knit in 2 days still deserve to be catalogued!  I like the twisty stitches in this cable - it gives it a little something extra, and tightens the overall look just a bit.
