J has been wearing it since this "photo shoot," so I think she likes it.
The mods I made from the original pattern on knitty was the high collar, originally a mistake but she liked how it looked long. The mod for where the cables join is from a helpful note by jmfknits on ravelry. Also made the sleeves longer, but I did something wrong with the decreases and they are oddly bunchy, but I've decided to ignore that.
Someone on Twitter said she looks like Sandra Bullock in this photo. What do ya think?
