Dorothy and her daughter have struggled with this cardigan. They were given the purple yarn, which was a bit to bright and scratchy so they mixed it with a navy blue wool. Blue did soften the colour but not the texture, which is rather rough.  Dorothy's daughter knitted up the cardigan but got stuck on how to finish the neckline, which due to it's roughness, curls up. There was some indecision as to how the bottom ribbing should be, as it seemed too long, so they'd started to hem it.  With the hem and the collar still not working, Dorothy thought it best to un ravel the whole thing and use the yarn for something else, so she made an incision in the right front panel, and started to un ravel, but that wasn't working either so she has donated the whole thing to UFO administration.
