.......with my purple cardi. I'm working on the shaping of the 2nd sleeve, having completed the back and 2 front sides already. I think it will be quite big on as I was much bigger when I started than I am now.

Good for you! If it's a little big you can wear it around the house as a nice comfy, warm sweater.

Nothing better than a snuggly cardigan even if it is big and isn't it always grand to say something is too big and the reason is not because you messed up the knitting but because you are smaller! :)

Thanks for all the encouragement. I'm not there just yet as I was away for a few days and just had a small project with me and haven't taken up the cardi again, but I will get there. It has been a long time on the needles, one of the reasons being that there was an error in the pattern and I had to email the magazine where I found it to get it sorted. It took a long time, but eventually they emailed me the correct version.
