    I would get bloodstains all over my clothes if I tried to dress my cat in a cardigan...

    Based on the number of likes so far, that cat is going to win this competition.

    I initially thought that I had no cardigan sweaters in my closet, until I remembered that I had one - an Irish fisherman knit, circa 1968, which my father had made for himself (clever man that he was). To that end, here's my father's handiwork (though I'd never attempt to wear this sweater with a suit - too bulky and too warm). This obviously does not qualify for the challenge, but I thought it might be of interest to the contestants.

    I acknowledge I'm no match for the cat, but maybe I'll come in second.

    Did your father actually knit this himself? From the picture it looks really well made. Something to wear in front of the fire a cold winter's day preferably with a good cognac nearby.

    My father did actually knit the sweater himself, as my mother was making a crew-neck and a turtleneck version of an Irish fisherman sweater for myself and my brother at the same time. It is very warm - something to keep you warm on a cold, damp winter's evening.

    While I'm sure I can beat neither the cardi-cat nor Gerry's orange, I'm happy to participate since there's no tie requirement.

    Here's my entry, in shades and textures of blue.

    Cox, I'm afraid your entry does not satisfy the rules of the challenge: "Wear a tailored jacket"
