23rd November 2012
Finished! Fits well, and feels comfy.
Sleeves a little long - could do with being about 3cm shorter, but not unwearable.
Fastening as given in pattern isn’t going to keep the cardi done up. I’ll think about it, press stud?
Now I just need to be at home in daylight to take photographs.

5th November 2012
Finished body, and it fits.
Started first sleeve. Decided not to put clusters on my wrists, so have started with row 6 - the row of single crochet.

19th October 2012
Have realised that this is going to be just slightly too small when using 5.5mm hook. Am going to try again using 6mm - I should have trusted my swatch!

September 2012
Initial rows of clusters work out very long! Rows 7 and 8 pull them in quite a bit.
