Sofie's orange jakket

Last July while we were in Denmark on vacation Sofie asked me to knit her skirt and top in yellow, and a cardigan in orange. She went with me to the shop and picked the colors she wanted. I hesitated since I belived the colours would be to brigth. Sofie responded that colours could not be to bright for her. Based on the photo of her in a Nigerian outfit with her cardigan on top, I guess she has proven me wrong.
Well, I made the set in yellow, which she is frequently using, and started on that cardigan. It took some time, and I just had to do a few smaller projects while doing it. But now it is done, and she is using it.
Recipe and yarn were from the Danish company "Hjertegarn" and luckily Danish and Norwegian are so close as written languages that there were only one word I had to google to find out what to do.
