Rachel graduates from her Quantity survey at Newcastle with good second upper grade. I wanted to give her something special as her graduation gift. As a knitter, there is nothing can be more special than a handknit gift right? So, I picked out a pattern from garnstudio and knitted her this sweater http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=100&d_id=21&lang=en with the Patons classic wool merino I have.

Rachel is quite petite and I really think this pattern will show her feminine figure good. I din't follow the pattern entirely and AGAIN I added cable pattern on the sleeves. She took a picture of herself in it once she received this surprise as this is the request I wrote on the card. She looks so lovely and nice in the sweater

It's lovely, and a perfect fit! I'm sure she'll enjoy it for many years. Those cable sleeves are just beautiful -- an interesting way to personalize the pattern. Sort of a signature, maybe?

I totally dig the cables down the sleeves. THAT is cool. Also like the wide band around the waist (although I've not got the waist that I want accentuated. LOL). Gorgeous colors and looks GREAT on her. WTG
