Finished Object: Renaissance Basket Stitch Cardigan

I finished my Renaissance Basket Stitch cardigan a few days ago. Today we had our TricoThé at a local salon de thé, so I asked one of my fellow tricoteuses to take a few photos of me and my cardigan. I'm very happy with the result. It's a nice, basic cardigan, but not too basic. And the yarn is pretty soft and scrumptious; it does pill a lot though. I used Kinna by Cheval Blanc.

You have the right to a headless shot:


And to a few back shots:




The salon de thé where we meet up is very cute and has a garden in back. It's a little too cold to sit outside, but we were right next to the window so the light was beautiful.

Here's a shot of our table; I had the chai. :)


I love the colors on the table!

And, just for fun, here's a shot of a scarf that my friend recently finished. I love the colors in the scarf too, and it matches the radiator:
