Airplane trips to the rescue

Thanks mostly to a couple of cross-country nonstop flights in the last week, the back of Hild is done. Here's a picture of it (2 rows before completion, but when the evening light was starting to fail and I couldn't wait any longer to pull out the camera):

And here's a closer shot of the cables.

Part of me is kind of sad, thinking of having to make all those cables AGAIN before it's all over, but this is going to be by far the prettiest thing I've ever made with my hands. I can't wait to wear it.

By the way, those mismatched sleeve caps? The longer one is the one that fits. The short one has been frogged.
