My Mom loved my first $5 in Paris sweater so much, she asked me to knit her one. She's my biggest knitting fan/cheerleader, so I was happy to do it for her.  She opted for cables and long sleeves rather than short sleeves and stripes. I checked out a bunch of stitch books from the library to find a cable and my mom out a Celtic knot.  I thought it was a beautiful choice. 

 I knitted a gauge swatch beforehand and the yarn grew quite a bit.  So the pre-blocked sweater fit me like a glove (the greedy, devilish side of me wished it would stay my size so I could keep it for myself) but after blocking it was the right size for my mom.  Someday I might make one for myself...
