I finished my cardigan. The right green is not exactly the same as the previous one, but it is acceptable.
The hempyarn grew alot after washing and drying, and the design with the mitred points even enhances the 'droopy' look. In retrospect, I should have shortened it even more, maybe by another 3 inches?
And the sun did shine when I finished my cardigan. I like to keep my promises...
I am sorry I cannot keep the sun here forever. You never know what spring brings you here in Belgium. But the weather does produce a luscious green blooming garden, so that's something to be gratefull for too.
