Madewell Bookshop Cardigan, Cable Knit Sweater, and Llama!

Madewell for Christmas
Bookshop Cardigan

I got this for my daughter.  Her J Crew cardigan had holes in both arm pits.  In all fairness she wears it to school ( part of uniform) almost everyday in the fall and most days in the winter.  Unfortunately, J Crew just didn't have an economical choice during "Sale" weekend ( she ain't ready for cashmere).  So we picked this out for 25% off plus free shipping.  I guess I should really look closer at the web pictures because we got some pleasant surprises... elbow patches and texture.
Texture of front vs. arms

This sweater is a size Small.  I wear size Medium but I thought I'd put it on just to show length.  It is tight in the arms so I would definitely need Medium.

It is 100% merino wool.  Not real soft, but not real itchy.  It will do but I do believe she wishes I could knit the holes up on her old J Crew cardigan.

This is a very simple but cute "fisherman" sweater.  A bit short for me but very appropriate for my dear daughter.  I would wear a Medium...this is the Small on me.  
Almost didn't post because it is tooo small - nicely made
I would definitely wear a medium, so TTS.  It is also 100% wool.  However, it it much softer than the above cardigan. Hmm.  With the 25% off plus free shipping I think I got a very nice Christmas gift.

We went to Peru this summer and my daughter fell in love with Llamas and Alpacas so I had to get this for her.  It will be a nice surprise on Christmas morning.  It has three adjustments for length:
Here's the real thing:
And yes, she has Llama socks coming from Anthropologie...too cute!  I'll show you those when they come in.
