well of the 3 things I've posted today this is the item I'm most happy with. I think it'll be perfect for my DD on Christmas. can't wait to see her in it.

I got the pattern at knitty.com
here's a link: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTbriarrose.html

here's the sweater:

and here's a close up of the cables.

this was a fun one. it took me just over a week, and I knitted the sleeves on in the round rather than knitting flat, and stitching them on.  I don't even know if I did that right, but I really didn't want to do much seaming on this. heck if I'd thought of it in time I would've done the body in the round too!  I think it turned out ok seeing as how I've only really been knitting for 2 weeks now (if you don't count the first 7 years it took me to finish one item)

anyway, thanks for looking!

WOW! That is gorgeous.  Only two weeks knitting??  I've been knitting for about two years, and the only thing that comes out right are scarves.  I've try to make vests and they always come out too small or too big.  I guess I have problems measuring the gauge.  It seems right to me when I measure it, but some how the final product never comes out right.  Anyway.  Great job.  Lovely sweater!
Thanks for sharing.
