J blogged a month or so ago that she had a cardy on her needles. Luckily, she managed to finish it just in time.
IRL the colour is blue, not purple. It is a perfect fit, even the arm length. The yarn is a sock yarn but I don’t know what brand. It is very soft and is perfect for the early autumn weather. The temperature has just started to drop so he is going to be wearing it a lot.
