Here it is at long last! I could tell you all the bad things about it now it is finished and evaluated but do you know what? I’m not going to because I am so pleased I made it to the end and didn’t just frog it and leave it after my failed attempts.
I’m going to tell you what I like about it instead.
1) It fits, just about but it fits. Need I say more?
2) I’m pretty pleased with the neatness of my sewing, as it is the bit that I tend to get bored with and struggle to get the perfect finish I aim for.
3) I even tried to block it. I think it helped a bit with finishing off the lace and my new chair came in very handy.
4) Heart shaped buttons (I’m not going into the practicalities of doing them up with such a fiddly shape and the buttonhole yarn getting caught because I’m staying positive!) I suspect Dave may curse me for using them when it’s his turn to get her dressed but they are so cute.
I think it goes really well with this dress, which was the main one I had in mind when I started this project in this colour. (I promise I tried to iron the dress!)
Well that’s it for now, I feel proud of completing my project and still have almost 300g of that yarn left because lace doesn’t use much. (My mum told me I needed over 200g for a basic cardigam for Jess and it came in packs of 4x50g balls so had to buy 2.) I’m going to think about what to do with it-maybe in June as May is busy enough!
Thank you for reading and following this little cardigan on it’s journey to completion.
