A CPH for my dear daughter-in-law

This CPH was for my dear daughter-in-law's birthday.

I used some cream colored wool that I purchased at my fiber guild's stash sale. With such a small investment I decided to be daring and knit the sweater in the round, with steeks for the front opening and armholes. I finished the front edges with applied I-cord and used a zipper for the closure. The sleeves were picked up around the armholes and knit down to the wrists. I used Barbara Walker's book "From the Top" for that process.

Isn't she lovely? My daughter-in-law in the sweater! She lives far away, so the whole thing was a gamble. This was the first time I'd really tried cables too. All in all, a satisfying project.
