But when it came to wearing it, that was a different story. It just didn't make me feel as elegant as I had visualised. A friend advised me to unravel it and knit something else, but after all that work I just couldn't bring myself to do it. There wasn't anything inherently wrong with the cardigan, it just didn't suit me. So it sat in my cupboard.
But last week I gave it to my daughter Penny. It looks great on her, she loves wearing it, hooray! And being made of wool, it's very warm, just right for the upcoming winter in Perth, Australia, where she lives.
