Secret project revealed

Since my downstream SP, Deborah, received my last package, I can now show you what I knit for her:

It's a top-down-raglan with cables running down the center of the arms and sides of the body. It took a lot longer to knit than I thought it would and I am glad I didn't go for my initial idea of dyeing yarn myself. It would have taken even longer and I don't think I would have been able to finish that in a timely manner.
The yarn I used was Schachenmayr Alpacana in "natur", the same yarn(different color) I used for my mum's Samus cardigan(that is still missing the zipper...). I love that yarn, but when I knit it I have to sneeze occasionally.
