This was one of those projects where everything seemed to go wrong  Huh The sleeves were to long, the body too short and then I couldn't find the right coloured buttons. Oh well, its done now and I'm fairly pleased with the end result. My daughter looks cute in it anyhow so I guess it was worth it!









I've written more about my trials and tribulations here - so feel free to take a look and have a chuckle at my expense!  Grin

Very sweet. I'm just a beginner and haven't attempted anything more complicated than a pair of mittens yet, but I have already frogged almost every project at least once.  I feel your pain -- but I your end result is well worth it.

Here here. I've only attempted hats (could anything be easier than a bunch of circles?) but I still manage to get all confounded.

I love the cardigan though! Your daughter looks really really cute in it too!

 Cheesy She's looks cute in it  Oh no she looks completely adorable in it  Wink Now you need to make her several more since you got all the kinks out of the pattern.
