I did threaten a knitting post so here goes - I finally finished the cardigan I started before Christmas, bar the buttons which need a trip to the wool shop! This picture actually makes it look brighter than it looks 'in the flesh'. I think it's what usually gets called aubergine. This was some wool a girl at work was giving away so basically a free cardigan and I'm pretty pleased with the result. It's quite boxy which I think looks good - no idea if that fashionable or not! I wouldn't rush to knit with such dark yarn again though as it was really hard on the eyes sewing it up!
I've also knitted a pair of wrist warmer for Mother's Day but no pic as they went in the post this morning! I now have a really fluffy blanket on the needles for the niece or nephew who's due to arrive in June.
