A few weeks ago I finished this cadigan for myself, and got my sister to take photos while she was home on break. I thought the local orchard would be a good setting, and we needed eating apples anyway, so there we went.
The pattern is Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark's "Girl Friday" (free on Knitty.com!) which I've had on my to-make list for over a year now. Finally I seized the chance when I had a lull in commission knitting and made it up. It was a quick knit and fairly easy. As usual I added considerable length to both the body and the sleeves, but changed nothing else.

It's very cosy and practical - this day was chilly, with a biting wind and the occasional spatter of sleet, but I stayed quite warm.
It's the first cardigan I've ever knitted for myself, but I hope it won't be the last!
