FO Friday: Fieldwork Cardigan

At last, I have photos to share of my greatest sweater-knitting accomplishment to date: my Fieldwork Cardigan knit in Sincere Sheep yarn!

This has been finished for a while, but it's been a little tough finding the right time to take photos; I always knew where I wanted to take photos, however! There is an art space we pass frequently on our way to New Wave Coffee that occasionally has interesting things appear in it: fake meteors on wires stuck in to the ground, pop-up shops, and most recently, this random sign:

Who knows how long it will be there? Not me, but I'm glad that we've captured this little bit of Chicago ephemera while we could.

This is Tyler's favorite shot:

Getting back to the sweater....I am in love with this! I know that I haven't styled it like the pattern photos (which are totally cute), but I really like wearing it as an open cardigan. I can already tell that this will be one of my favorites this fall.

The pattern was well-written and easy to follow and appears in the Summer 2013 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly - you can read my review here if you are interested in learning more. I scored my yarn during the store closing sale; it's nice to have a wearable memento!
