At long last - a Photo of that Cardigan!
Here it is at long last - a photo of my mauve cardigan. It doesn't look great on me, I know, so am open to suggestions lol.

Amazing - for once the image was not too big for posting.

That's a beautiful sweater and I love the color. What don't you like about it when you have it on? What yarn did you use?

Thank you so much for all your lovely compliments! The mauve was my second choice of colour as the yarn shop where I bought it didn't have enough of my first choice, but it looks like it was the right choice.

Despite its looking so big on me I mostly like it - apart from the sleeves, which look rather baggy. However, they do sit neatly around my wrists.

Thanks again.

Gillian
