I love cream and off white in the winter, especially in knits and sweaters. It looks great with denim of all washes and is often perfect when paired with earth tones. Not limited to, but think this season's color trends of camel and army green.
As for the cable detailing, I love it. It's a cool knitting technique used to create a braid like or ribbed pattern. For me, it's helps make what could be a boring sweater have a bit of character.
