Along with sewing pretty dresses recently I have been trying to be practical and sew some basics, how dull!
I try and get most basics from the charity shops but I have been in search of the perfect navy cardi for ages now and have never found one, so, my navy interlock that was destined to be a renfrew became a cardi. Much better use actually as I am finding it just a touch heavy for the renfrews I made in the white interlock (they still get worn all the time though).
I used McCalls 6844 again and I still love the pattern, view B really is my perfect cardi.
Here is a typical Alison shot of the cardi in action, it was breezy!

This pattern will definitely be getting used again, maybe not for a while though as I have run out of space in my wardrobe...
