Well here it is. I had a bit of a love hate thing going on with it whilst I was making it. At one point I was worried that it really was to 80's and I was gonna look like something out of bananarama. Anyway now it is finished I think I shall wear it. I hadnt realised how short in the body it was. Today has been really too cold to have my tummy exposed. So unless you are under 5ft I suggest you add a couple of inches to the bottom.
I have cast on two more things today a pair of socks for my boy in opal elemente and another cardigan for me in Debbie Bliss alpaca silk Dk (more blue green I am afraid) which has been on the waiting list since last xmas.

Well an update on the cardigan. The actual cardigan took me a week, I had planned to wear it down to london to meet my cousin Carmel as she arrived from Canada. Unfortunately I didn't realise how long the collar would take or how much we would chat over two weeks. It was very boring to knit and there are a ton of mistakes in it because it was so boring, I couldn't face pulling it back. Anyway I only have the buttonbands to do now and putting it together so I shall wear it when I go to the knitting and stitching show in Harrogate at the weekend. Hmm can't find the leads for the camera so you will have to wait until tomorrow for a photo .........might be a finished one then to.
