  • I’m afraid the notes for this project are somewhere. I do not know where this somewhere is!
  • I really enjoyed making this cardigan and although the last few rows are long, I don’t remember it being a chore.
  • Sorry for the lack of modelled shots; I took these photos in October 2012, when I was still quite ill and as a consequence, none of them look very good.
  • It’s extremely warm and very comfortable. It’s also grown a little since I finished it due to the alpaca basically dragging itself down! This hasn’t been a problem so far, but I will keep you posted if that changes.
