It seems that the suspense was just too much, and I've been told to share. The colour I chose was aubergine, and is so much nicer in real life.
This is the back, and shows off the pattern beautifully. It's a great pattern, and only needed one repeat to get it into my head.
All being well, it should be finished by the end of this month so her son can pick it up and take it back to France. I'll show you the front tomorrow.
