I did start making that cardigan. I decided on maroon collar facing and sleeve so it looks faaaabulous with the gray houndstooth. I could tell when I unfolded it that it would fit me nicely and as I put it together it still seems the case!
I have it all cut out and the entire back done and the darts on the front threadtraced
The houndstooth was a salvage but the maroon I bought YEARS ago now.
