Cardigan finished

You know that saying "the camera loves her"?
Well the camera has really got a grudge against me, because since adulthood the only two photos of me I haven't hated have been taken in low light and from about 10 m away.

Anyway, the cardigan's finished, just in time for our trip to the UK in their spring. I'll be wearing it over long sleeves of course, so protect my dainty skin from wool-irritation.

It will probably look much better over a black t-shirt rather than the shiny green thing pictured here.
If you want the the whole gory knitting story, go here.

It looks fantastic and hope it keeps you toasty warm in the UK. If it wasn't so hot in Brisbane I'd get Ray's mum to make me one just like it!

That is so lovely! I'm sure you will get plenty of use out of it both here and in the UK.

Thanks for your nice comments!

Donnasoowho, You could ask Ray's mum to knit you one in cotton.

that's true, I could, but she's quite busy at the moment making me 3 dresses for the Chairman's wedding...

And actually, it's too hot here to even wear a cotton cardy.
