Ballet Cardigan

All finished! I've been meaning to do this for ages and with an Easter wedding coming up I thought I'd better get a shift on, since the yarn's been sitting around since Christmas.

The pattern is from Crochet in No Time, one of my favourite books. I had a bit of a fight with the sleeves; lots of frogging and cursing and doing it all over again. Actually I'm not 100% convinced they're right even now as they seem quite long, but the size 3-4 is fairly big all over, it seems. Perhaps it'll be a little better after washing. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK.

Doesn't she look grown-up...?

Back and front views:

Other stuff...I've been quite off-colour this week so haven't achieved much beyond the cardigan; I finished a set of chocolate muffins for the shop which need photographing, am half-way through a custom order of cakes and have three amigurumis to be sewn together. Lots of stuff half-completed...thank goodness for Ravelry!
