New sweater

This is the finished sweater I started back in January.  The yarn is Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran.  The pattern is from Rowan's 'A Yorkshire Fable'.  The yarn is quite heavily flecked and does not show up the cables or pattern very well.  It's basically a Guernsey-style and just right for the warm spring weather we're currently experiencing here in London!
