French Lavender 1940s cardigan

I’m working on another 1940s cardigan, this one is in soft lavender which is not a colour that suits me at all so I’ve never thought to make anything in this colour until a potential customer got in touch to suggest it.

Now I don’t know about you but I let personal bias affect everything I choose to make so it’s nice when someone gets in touch and prompts you to do something different.  So far I’ve made this cardigan in biscuit, black, mustard and now this lavender and I’d say it works equally well in light and dark shades.  I’m part way through making a navy one for me too but as that one is for me the chances of it ever getting finished are a fair bit slimmer than me.

So here we are – progress not quite to date because this is now very nearly finished.  I’ve knitted this in every spare minute and just have the button bands left to knit before I sew it up, these pictures are a random assortment of places and stages of knitting including at home, on trains, at concerts and at work (in my lunchbreak).
