NEWT update: Cardigan body is finished!

Remember last week I told you about my large crafting plans?

The Matilda Jane cardigan is coming along well. I've finished the body (modified the edges as I didn't like them so much). The ribbon in the back is what I loved immediatly when I saw the pattern. There's also a lot of shaping I followed to the letter. Was a bit annoying to count almost each row but worth it, this will have a nice close fit!

Progress on the dress? Well, not so much. I misread the pattern and had to frog the whole thing. But it's on the go now...

All together, this is a fat 25% of the global plan, on track so far!
