New sweater for my daughter
I found this pattern in a book called Knit on Down. I found it at JoAnns and bought it because they were having a sale and it had a few patterns in my daughters size. So this had top down construction. The sizing was off though and I had to do some adjusting...my gauge was perfect.

Book here: http://www.amazon.com/Knit-Down-Mult...1428606&sr=1-1

The yarn is Valley Yarns Superwash from Webs. Color periwinkle.

It is so pretty; you are so lucky your daughter will wear things you knit. My kids never wanted to wear anything I knit except maybe a scarf here and there.
